Paulo Sinski Microband – LFO [Cosmic Resonance Records]

PauloSinskiMicroband_PPE_LFO_ArtworkToronto’s Cosmic Resonance announces a new series of digital releases which will include maxi singles and shorter EPs. First up in the series is the Paulo Sinski Microband, a local T.O outfit that includes Paul Osinski himself and drummer/collaborator Hector Alonso. The duo started by performing several live shows together to great fanfare. This gave them the confidence to pursue their collaboration even further. Their goal is to continue to lift dance music out of traditional club venues and into a live stage setting.

Taking Paul’s originals and re-crafting them together into more polished yet gritty, rave-ready slammers with live drums has been their M.O.. Thus far, the tracks have been hot and heady. The forthcoming PPE/LFO EP on Cosmic Resonance is no different.

Our premiere today is LFO, a cover of a track by the same name released in 1990 on Warp Records. The track wastes no time and jumps straight into the nitty gritty. The familiar bleeps from the original play over a beefed up and revised version of the bassline. The same pads are now seemingly much wider and take you deep into the late night dancefloor, becoming a focal point of the track. The drums add a crisp and polished feel to the whole composition. A modern version of a classic tune, this one easily does the original justice and in our opinion, even ups the ante. We only wish it were longer!

Keep an ear out for more music from the Paulo Sinski Microband and if you’re in Toronto, be sure to hit up some of their live shows once we’re able to enjoy live music again. In the meantime, dig into their discography and pre-order this record here.
