exclusive premiere: August Artier – Lo-Fi Stories 01 [Serialism Records]
Serialism Records starts the new year by welcoming back Italo-Australian artist August Artier with “Lo-Fi Stories EP” alongside Cali Lanauze and Carlo Gambino on remix duties. The Barcelona-based artist already left his fingerprint on the imprint’s catalogue back in 2021 with “Shadows EP” while other collaborations include releases with Rawax, 20/20 Vision, Get Physical, Complex Textures, Vandalism Musique, Zebra Records, Lescale Recordings, Voltaire Music, Kindisch, Lauter, Libe Vibe, Conceptual and his own Artier Dubs, among others.
With almost 14 years of activity in the international electronic music scene, Cesare vs Disorder‘s Serialism Records constantly deliveres vinyl and digital releases, memorable showcase events as well as various other treats and surprises for the people. Among the artists that worked with the label we find Duc In Altum, Nazt, Quenum, Cristi Cons, Sublee, Dubphone, Vlad Arapasu, Reclame, Red Pig Flower, Andre Buljat, Javier Carballo, Monika Ross and Walker Barnard, to name only a few.
Opening the EP, “Lo-Fi Stories 01” drops a raw and twisted minimal techno sound designed with a funky swing that dives deep into eerie tribal flavours that are smoothly combined with low-slung analog textures, sharp sequences, subtly glitched layers and spacious breakdowns, making the track a powerful dancefloor tool.
The three originals perfectly represent the artist’s current sonic endeavours as he elegantly blends elements of house, techno and breakbeat with a pinch of minimal flavour. Some ethnic vocals, rolling percussive loops and evanescent synths will guide you throughout a mysterious journey, whether it will be on the dancefloor or at home. Expect a gritty yet solid sound that’s going to make you shake your body in an instant.
To make this extra special, Carlo Gambino joins the Serialism family for the first time, providing his unique old-school, deep house touch to the second original, while closing the release, label regular and Opulence head chef Cali Lanauze brings his warm, Caribbean vibes into play for an intriguing and groovy remix.
