After two first singles «Disco Inferno» and «Brizmax Dance», a debut EP Mental Scapes released in 2016 -- acclaimed by Laurent Garnier or Brawther amongst others -- and the launch of their own imprint Virage Records, ALVA (soundcloud) are back with a second opus French Kicks on Pont Neuf Records. We can find the paw of the Parisian duo, whether their pads with large chords, their groovy basslines or their melodies mixing fresh sounds and old school references.The EP opens with «Cécile du Flow», an organic track that mixes chords and jazzy sounds.
The second track «Pont 909» offers a bouncing bassline and an aerial progression with the TR-909’s groove. «Harry Poppers» -- the climax of the EP -- presents long track with a hypnotic riff and a strong club rhythm. «Drumsteak» comes to close the opus with an impressive panel of synthesizers, thus proposing a real mental journey.
