Our next premiere comes from the illustrious Urulu. Following a run of remarkable releases on Voyage Recordings, Kalahari Oyster Cult and his own Amadeus imprint, Urulu steps up for the next release on Copenhagen’s renowned Tartelet Records. Fusing elements of electro, jungle, old school rave and house with his own signature style, Urulu presents a thrilling collection of club-friendly tunes.
Our pick of the bunch is Destino Tikal, a percussive roller for the late hours. Pairing a rolling bass, 4/4 strut with a slew of percussion and no shortage of groove, Destino Tikal starts off with tribal energy. Bongos, triangles, maracas & shakers, you name it, Destino Tikal’s got it. As things get going, groovy stabs shimmer and stutter, distant vocals fade in and out & keys bounce all over in an irresistible groove. Just when you though it couldn’t get any better, the bass fades out one last time. From the abyss come delicate strings, and those once distant vocals emerge from the shadows. With the final drop, all elements reunite in an eruption of energy that’ll shake any dance floor. A no-fuss party starter that appeals to both body and soul, Destino Tikal is a bonafide club tool.
