Premiere: Id!r – Pega Duro el Sol
The winter had been dark and cold, the spring not too dissimilar, so a lot of expectations had been placed on summer. Now the long days of sunshine stretched from the early hours to late into the evening; what the people had long yearned for had finally arrived. Sweaty foreheads, sunburnt faces and humid households were welcomed with open arms; when the sun hit hard, it really hit hard.
Mexican producers Mufti and Alf Champion launched their Fucanglong Files imprint in November of last year with a VA that cemented the dark and hypnotic sounds we’d be hearing from future releases. These sounds reign supreme on their second release, an EP from Paris-based producer and musician Id!r. Following up outings for Darkroom Dubs and Clouded Vision, ‘Dry Lips’ pulls from a plethora of murky influences from dark wave and EBM to disco and minimal synth, fuelled by guitar licks, heavy kicks and raw synth lines.
