Hector‘s Vatos Locos Recordings returns with the label boss himself joining forces with VL family, David GTronic.
Unravelling across 10 minutes, ‘Holding On’ opens up this three tracker, offering a deep journey through the minimal grooves that Vatos Lacos is becoming a go-to label for. Surging kicks and crisp hats lay the groundwork for expansive undertones and sweeping pads, layered up with modulated stabs that delve into the depths of the track’s melancholic makeup.
Taking to the flip, ‘Gabacho’ follows with an immersive roller coupling a rumbling, big room kick with glitched out synthwork and overdriven vocals that twist and turn with crunched up hits. It’s lo-fi, sci-fi, set to take listeners to another dimension.
Closing out the EP, ‘Villa Kubu’ probes even deeper with menacing pads thundering in the background as crisp percussion cuts through to the fore. Erie and ominous in equal parts, it never loses that sure-fire groove that Hector and David make looks so effortless in their programming.
