connected hit release number 30 with a suitably excellent new EP from Luke Garcia and Th3 Oth3r featuring a remix from KONDRE and &Lez.
Luke Garcia is a Spanish artist with an influential show on Radio FG in the USA and has been a resident at Pacha Madrid. Th3 Oth3r is his frequent musical sparring partner and between them the pair have been making music for more than 12 years on essential outlets like Defected, Chapter 24 and King Street Sounds. They first hooked up three years ago and have a style rooted in house, but one that always takes cues from across the electronic spectrum.
Excellent lead single ‘Frixio’ is best defined as a melodic techno track, but with percussion that borders on Afro. The absorbing groove is a mysterious one full of FX that make it take flight into the skies.
Remixing are KONDRE (someone formerly known as Rancido) and &Lez, a deep tech artist from Bologna. The pair bring in a sparse yet upbeat and compelling electronic kalymba/xylophone loop that works its way into your soul. The growling synth adds another layer and makes the whole thing even more absorbing.
These are two more of connected’s perfectly magical house tracks designed to do special things to the dance floor.
