I’m becoming a bit of a Brazil nut

Bartolo – (E)espécies

Heading over to see Kraftwerk perform in their home town of Dusseldorf in a few hours. Wooohooo. So it seemed like fate when this arrived into SWIT HQ – latest release from Brazilian maestro Bartolo. In his own words
“(E)species has, above all, the characteristic of risking variation, giving up repetition as one of the general trends in synthesizer music today. Demonstrating technical skills and repertoire of possibilities and articulations, Bartolo structured a sonic continuum full of dynamics, passages, timbres and historical references (the Germanic synthesizer of the 70s for example), opening a consistent – and, perhaps, unlikely – path for the music of synthesizers in Brazil and Latin America.” This is 25 minutes of pure electronic heaven. Out now on Sê-lo! (Did I tell you Air were supporting too?)
