After impressing with his contribution to ‘Watergate 25’, emerging Spanish talent Upercent steps up for his first full-length EP on the label.
In recent years the Valencia native has emerged with releases on labels of the ilk of Kompakt, Diynamic and the tastemaker favourite microCastle Records. We got our first taste of his talents on Watergate Records when the superb ‘La Lluita’ featured exclusively as part of ‘Watergate 25 – Adana Twins’ compilation. Late last year he made his debut at the club, where his distinctive aesthetic connected naturally.
The new ‘Flor De Lotus EP’ exemplifies this style; a fusion of organic and analogue, Upercent’s productions are always thoughtful and emotive. ‘Somia’ is laden with cosmic synths, hints of the Mediterranean, and a dance-ready beat to boot.
The intricate percussion evident in ‘Somia’ carries through in ‘Pulcre’; another rhythmic piece infused with an enigmatic vocal and a pulsating bass that continues to build throughout. ‘Flor De Lotus’ culminates with a high-energy, late-night remix of ‘Pulcre’ from Romanian DJ/Producer BOg, who also graced the ‘Watergate 25’ compilation.
