Carlos A – Mateo

November 20, 2015 in Singles

Carlos A Mateo Disolend RecordsA very cool two-tracker from Chile’s Disolend Records here that mixes the old and the new, in house terms, to great effect.

On the A, Mateo itself has the prominent bassline that’s de rigeur in 2015 – albeit this one owes as much to vintage Chi-town as it does to the speed garage days – but marries it to understated piano chords and soulful male oohs and yeahs straight outta the New Jersey playbook. It’s an unhurried and actually quite unassuming affair, so probably best suited to warm-up or very late play. Over on the flip, meanwhile, Illusion operates in very similar territory, sporting another large b-line and more of those lovely ivories, but paired with female vocal snips this time.

Two classy cuts but Illusion just nudges it for me.
