Chrivu – Transfusion EP (w. Robert Apetrei remix) [Latch Records]
After two amazing releases signed by Leanca and Pachh, Danish electronic music venture Latch Records presents its third vinyl-only release in the form of “Transfusion EP” coming from Romanian rising talent Chrivu alongside Robert Apetrei on remix duties. Headed by Nicolae Dudau aka Dudd, one of Copenhagen’s most prolific figures in the underground scene, the label aims to connect different cultures through the power of music and bring forward top-quality releases, podcasts and events for the people.
With massive vinyl drops on labels such as Midas Touch, Kontent, Enfasi Records, Tzinah and PhonicHouse1, Chrivu has rapidly made a name for himself in both local and international circuits as he always delivers smooth minimal techno, microhouse and breakbeat sounds, whether we talk about his EPs or public performances. Here, he joins forces with Robert Apetrei (VSA Records, Lied, Cedesciu Wax, Hashplant, UVAR), well-known for his projects Dubsons with Vlad Arapasu and Nusons alongside Nu Zau. Enjoy the ride!
Side A kicks in with the title track “Transfusion”, laying out a minimalistic dubby composition elegantly flavoured with steady-paced drumming patterns, warm reverberating chords and pulsating effects that create a truly dreamy and dynamic atmosphere. Following, “Questline” switches gears for a funky uptempo sound, revealing a solid dancefloor tool infused with swinging percussive arrangements, a hypnotic wobbling bassline, electric riffs and deep synth melodies.
On the flipside we’re first served the shrugging and twisted design of “Pseudonym”, dropping an incisive rhythmic sequence that permeates throughout the whole track while the background layers have their own story to tell. What a scorching and trippy take right here. Closing the record, Robert Apetrei‘s remix takes the title track into a spiralling dimension, imbuing the original elements with progressive aspects, psychedelic frequencies and a driving groove that’s ready to take any dancefloor by storm.
A highly recommended 12′ right here for collectors, selectors and electronic music enthusiasts alike.
