Vlf – Falling EP (incl. Mihai Pol remix) [Maru]
After releasing two inspiring EPs from Suolo and Lulla, Sydney-based record label Maru announces its third pressing to arrive soon with local DJ and producer Vlf at the controls alongside Mihai Pol on remix duties. Titled “Falling EP”, the 12″ delivers a solid and hypnotic minimal sound that already enjoys early support from artists like Arapu, Costin Rp, Direkt, Gescu, Herck, Lizz, Nils Weimann, Petit Batou, Prajescu, Sepp, UserUnknwn, Venda and Zenk, among others. The artwork is signed by Raul Ciceu and the pressing will be limited to 300 copies.
Valentin Florea aka Vlf (Very Low Frequency) is a well-known presence in both local and international electronic music scenes, being a long-time resident at the Bipolar House events and having released amazing productions with labels like Tzinah, Auroom, Vandalism Black Series, Zebra Records, Red District, Elarum, LDN Records, Vivus and Bplr Records, aside from several other materials brought forward via Bandcamp.
Side A opens with the title track “Falling”, a dreamy minimalistic composition designed with warm meandering chords and a steady-paced drumming pattern elegantly interlaced with several breakdowns that create an introspective state of mind. Following, Mihai Pol takes the original rhythm into a more uplifting direction while adding a powerful and funky bassline to the story, as well as a subtle dubby effect to the background layers.
On the flipside we first find “Bijouxxx” which continues the cosmic journey of A1, reaching groovy sound fields where playful notes, eerie vocal cuts and a more driving percussive core merge into a powerful dancefloor anthem. Closing the wax, “Bambatha” drops a different kind of vibe, revealing a stripped-down rhythm carefully balanced by its arpeggiated elements and ever-evolving textures. Definitely a must-have record right here for selectors and collectors alike!
