Alpha Bite & Sebastian Le Shuff – Mellem EP [Oaza]
Copenhagen-based producer Florin Gianni Popovici aka Alpha Bite teams up with Viena-based artist Sebastian Le Shuff for Mellem EP (translated from Danish as “In between”), an inspiring collection of four techno-driven tracks designed with analogue and modular equipment. Given the negative aspects of the almost everlasting lockdowns in Europe, the material was co-produced from a distance and now is finally delivered through Sebastian’s label Oaza, which previously released a couple of EPs signed by the founder himself, ØU and Chano Macondiano.
Both protagonists share a Romanian heritage and a strong passion for modern electronic music composition or mixing and this can easily be seen in their activity and productions. From serious leftfield vibes to house, techno and everything in between, their imagination sprouts a lot of possibilities, which eventually brought them here together for this one of a kind collaboration.
The EP sets off with the vibrant aesthetics of Storm of Joy, a truly hypnotic rhythm set at around 125 bpm and backed up by twisted synth arpeggios, ever-evolving arrangements and carefully placed breakdowns that bring the background spiralling sounds into focus. Following, House in the Mountains drops a funky minimalistic vibe built around warm textures and bright notes that spin around a stripped-down percussive core that allows all the elements to merge into an amazing narrative. Perfect for the dancefloor. Tunisian switches gear to a darker tone and a tech drumming pattern, maintaining that subtle emotional drive elegantly interlaced within all the layers while Playground goes for a thumping minimal groove powered by prominent hi-hats, snares and drums, all enveloped into an organic and continuous movement. A highly recommended release right here!
