Guy Gerber welcomes the wonderfully talented Sonodab to his Supplement Facts imprint with his ‘Nowhere EP’ - four original tracks, taking you on a journey through deep, dubby house and techno.
First up ‘Acid Rhythm’ is carried by a strong groove, flowing along on a deep hypnotic wave with warbling synths subtly rising and falling back into the deep dubby atmosphere. Holding onto the fluid movement and fuzzy warmth, ‘Ars Geotia’ takes a techno turn with warm stabbing keys and prominent hi hats that carry the track through a solid, groovy pace until the end.
Next up ‘Freak’ is tighter, driving and techy with an array of intricate percussions and a precisely formulated loop, boasting plenty of swing and groove while later, warm pads envelop the rippling synth structures. Rounding off the EP and creating a cohesive whole, ‘Bon Voyage’ delivers a smooth dose of techno, beautifully textured with eerie haunts followed by dark waves and minimal clicks and bleeps.
Originally born in Barcelona, Chus Duran aka Sonodab fell in love with the old vinyl surrounding him in childhood and founding an eclectic taste. Starting out around 1994 as a resident DJ in his hometow, by 2004 after honing skills in production Chus signed with Funkdango Music to release his first record and later joined Decoder Muzique. A highly talented producer to emerge on the electronic scene, Sonodab has already edited and remixed for some of the biggest names in the business. It’s certain we will be hearing more of his name after this stellar EP on Supplement Facts…
