Quenum – Bolero Soul 2×12″ (w. DeWalta & Cristi Cons Remixes) [AdMaiora Music]
After almost a year of hiatus, the Italian record label AdMaiora Music returns with non-other than Cadenza co-founder Quenum delivering two fresh tracks alongside Meander head chef DeWalta and Romanian maestro Cristi Cons on remix duties. Titled “Bolero Soul”, the record arrives in a 2×12″ vinyl package that delivers a swift minimal sound, perfect for peak time moments as well as for laid-back afterparty selections at any event.
Born in 2015 from the mind of two electronic music lovers that wanted to share and express their passion for the house, techno and minimal genres, AdMaiora Music brings forward an intriguing catalogue, showcasing amazing music from artists like Nicola Calbi & Luky, NTFO, Markus Fix, Paolo Martini, The Mekanism, Christian Burkhardt, wAFF, Yaya and Reclame, among many others.
Philippe Quenum is widely known for his intense activity in the international community, as well as for his timeless releases with Cadenza, Cocoon, Fabric, Num Records, Toys For Boys, Soma Quality Recordings, Clapper, Balance Music, Crosstown Rebels and Serialism Records, to name just a few. His collaborations with Luciano, Cesare vs Disorder and Paulo Nascimento will always remain in the history of electronic music, as his distinct sound sure delivers the vibes. This EP makes no exception! Let’s dive in and explore the album in more detail:
Side A of the first record features the title track “Bolero Soul”, an uplifting carousel of trippy percussive arrangements, exotic recordings and gloomy analogue rumbles that constantly move over the 14 minutes ride. From subtle tribal chants to eerie atmospheres and pressing shakers the narrative ever-evolves showcasing a mesmerising sound, perfect for the dancefloor. On the flipside, DeWalta welcomes us into his realm made of poignant synths and evocative, almost ancestral, vocal pads with a cosmic remix. Traces of the original are still present, with the inward-looking motion translated by a descent into deeper dimensions, powered by a relentless breakbeat groove. The second disc drops the magical soundwaves of the “Mystic Full Moon” and Cristi Cons‘ remixes, which take the original edit from deep into the night to the vibrant hours of the sunrise. Edgy kicks, crisp grooves, gritty low-end frequencies and delicate rhythmic patterns ready to be enjoyed worldwide!
