Aterral records, the imprint of Malaga-born and Berlin-based DJ/Producer, Carlo, is turning two years old. Celebrating a sound that blends deep, life-affirming house, two-step and minimal, a smooth 8-track selection brings to the fore a range of underground dancefloor gems packed full of soul. Bringing seasoned mainstays and newcomers with it, Aterral’s renowned alternative output now takes a turn directly toward the dancefloor with a fresh and wide-ranging fusion of sounds.
Aterral newcomer Austin Ato brings a lo-fi work out on ‘Obsession 3’, as does fellow newbie Denalia with the ultra-minimal ‘Room One’. The collection wouldn’t be complete without the label’s already burgeoning family members…
Jesse Bru, who’s ‘Rainforrest’ EP from earlier this year has been a highlight for so many, delivers early morning warehouse vibes on ‘In the Deep’. Lis Sarroca’s ‘Magic Happenings’ comes correct with its metronomic tempo, Emanuele Barilli brings his throbbing chords on ‘Be Pe Em’ and Nephews stimulates the senses with the smooth warmth of ‘Waves’.
Aterral’s dearest friend Black Loops springs into action with the swinging two-step bounce of ‘Fanacanna’, whilst label boss Carlo.. As the title suggests… Is ‘Just Tripping Lightly.’
