After a two year break, Watergate Affairs comes strong with the third installment of the popular series, this time focusing on unearthing talent from outside the crew’s immediate circle.
A superb quintuplet of cuts marks its return. Danish duo Baime contribute the glistening ‘Majka’ that entrances with a beguiling mix of cosmic synths and ethnic scales.
Tel Aviv’s Kadosh returns to the label after featuring on the Adana Twins’ ‘Watergate 25’ compilation last year. His track is the seductive ‘Better Days’, a beautiful piano-led piece that stands apart thanks to the artist’s deft arrangement skills, having played the keys since he was 12.
Buenos Aires born, Ibiza-based Kintar drops the evocative ‘Paradisou’, that builds with bass stabs, an exotic vocal line and swirling pads for a dancefloor-ready finish.
The perky ‘Lucero Del Alma’ rounds out the pack, the label debut from Kevin Di Serna. The Argentine, who’s released quality material on Innervisions, Endless and Lost & Found crafts a hypnotic house cut primed for late night moments.
