18 for 2018, #14: Wasserfall

Wasserfall ‎– HESP005 (Hesperian Sound Division).

Shades of Ultramarine and Jan Jelinek run through this ace EP from yet another artist and label that were new to me in 2018. The most DJ-friendly cut is probably Daniel Chavez’s remix of Stiv Heks, on side A, but it’s all about the two B-side cuts for my ears.

Twilight is a gorgeous slice of organic, fuzzy-at-the-edges house music which builds layer upon layer of warm chords, wordless vocals and soft percussion; while Gravlaks weaves looping jazz samples around slightly tougher drums and analogue bass tones. Addictive stuff.
