High expectation on this one.
Abril who has been involved with some renowned outputs in the past like Mobilee, Defected, Ovum, Get Physical and Bedrock delivers a two-tracks EP on the label’s first release.
First, ‘They Groovers’ is a lolloping dubby tech roller, it’s laden with spacious kicks and a velvet low-end bassline that gently folds over itself like funk origami as momentum heats up on every bar while more otherworldly textures and glitches pop and frazzle in the blend.
‘Exodus’ completes the circuit. With brazenly chunky drum sounds adding dangerous voltage on every kick, Abril proceeds to layer rhythmic elements by the kilowatt. Hypnotic, hip-shaking and insatiably funky, the magnetic flux is strong on this one.
Gel Abril’s ‘They Groovers’ EP is already available on Closed Circuits.
