Andre Moret – Max [Nature Rec]

6 min read

Following on from the success of Arbey Gonzalez's 'Aleana', Nature Rec welcomes Andre Moret back to the label for a new EP. As one of Brazil’s most highly regarded progressive house artists, Andre has achieved many successes across his five year career. World class DJs Hernan Cattaneo and Nick Warren have been regular supporters, while his inimitable productions have found a home on Clubsonica, Freegrant Music, Plattenbank, The Soundgarden and more. Having appeared on Nature three times previously, Andre now makes a welcome return to the label for his first solo artist EP entitled 'Max', alongside remixes from Leo Perez and Peve & Nehli.

Although known for his smooth progressive style, of late Andre has been exploring the organic side of house and with 'Max' comes some of the first reveals of this sound from the Brazilian. Dusty drums and soulful instrumentation play beautifully across the expansive eight minute running time, but it's the amalgamation of the parts which truly delights here. The lead elements are so distinctive and tasteful that Andre let's them breathe just as the should, nicely interwoven with bending tones and a healthy does of celestial atmospherics which provide a gorgeous backdrop during a heartfelt break. The companion piece 'Wind Bends' goes deeper with a similarly impressive array of exotic drums and cross-cultural motifs. There's a freeform feel to this which is absolutely amazing, and perhaps the track's strongest suit as you feel like your listening to a live performance in a way.

The lone interpretation of 'Max' is provided by Nature boss Leo Perez who we last heard from in June with his remix of 'Piedad' by Arbey Gonzalez. Leo goes for a pacier version with the tempo rising a touch but the overall vibe of the remix remains quite deep. Carefully crafted chord stabs pave the way for a fluttery lead theme which carries the sensibility of the original quite nicely, ultimately coming to full fruition across a spacious break, which does wonders to reset the vibe for a finale which is equal parts percussive and groovy.

Rounding out the release are label debutants Peve & Nehli who provide the lone interpretation of 'Wind Bends'. Best known for their collaborations for Hoomidaas and Zenebona, the Brazilian pair combine their extensive forces once again for an exceptional remix here. Trippy and daring in equal measure, this psychedelic style is something I wish we'd see more of in organic house, as the duo paints a prophetic story with deconstructed elements and freeform effects which are backed by stompy beats and mesmerizing percussion to close out the release on an inspired note. Highly recommended.
