Pier Bucci is without doubt one of the most original and talented producers in the world of electronic music today and it’s always very exciting to have a new release from the charming Chilean, the Chiloe EP is no different.
Pier’s life has changed a great deal in the last few years, from his early experimental work with fellow peers such as Luciano and Dandy Jack, it wasn’t until Damian Lazarus of Crosstown Rebels signed him that the clubworld really started to sit up and take notice. From this relationship we’ve been blessed with a selection of wonderful EP’s and arguably one of the finest electronic albums in recent years – Familia. Pier is now in demand; travelling the world over delivering unique laptop sets to adoring fans at some of the finest parties around. He’s also been perfecting and adapting his second album for the Rebels, more on that exciting news very soon…
The Chiloe EP is classic Bucci. Intricate clicky rhythms weave in and out of throbbing bass lines and haunting effects with all number of glitches and crashes coming to the fore throughout. It’s his signature sound, but what makes it so special is the depth and atmosphere he creates within each track, ‘Glasgow’ has a far more sombre feel with drawn out organ sounds whilst ‘Shekinah’ is far lighter with hand claps and guitar licks. ‘Horizont’ builds from the start with a huge groove, incorporating distorted female vocals and the most complex of arrangements, which leads on to the title track and yet another composition of effortless class.
A beautiful 4 track EP that is essential listening for the club and on headphones – its music to stimulate the mind and the body.
