Santini – Beluga [Strange Town Recordings]

0 second read

Santini returns to Canada’s Strange Town Recordings this week with a new single entitled ‘Beluga’. The Toronto resident first appeared on the Montreal based label in April of last year alongside sometime studio partner SpeakOf with ‘Melodrama’. Now returning for his first solo single for the label, Santini presents ‘Beluga’ alongside remixes from Alyne and Michael A.

Beginning with a tough yet warm groove Santini slowly works ghostly vocal motifs and astral arps into the framework, all over a subtle yet powerful acid line. As the break commences the narrative shifts into more musically inspired territory, with gorgeous tonal themes and warm bass swells delivering impassioned moments which ultimately leads to a charming finale.

The first interpretation of ‘Beluga’ is provided by Alyne who makes her label debut. Hailing from Stuttgart, the German artist is famed for releases on Parquet Recordings and Soulful Techno Records. Now presenting her first production of 2019, Alyne delivers a gorgeous interpretation of ‘Beluga’. Beginning with warm, rugged beats and a rippling low end, the German artist expertly works in astral themes all while keeping a dramatic sense of space. Almost cavernous in a way, it's a cosmic journey of tasteful arps and elegant tones. The acid line from the original adds some grit, before a well constructed break brings further drama and intrigue, eventually getting washed away in favour of the ominous groove. Definitely one to send a large room home happy.

The release concludes with label artist Michael A returning for his fifth appearance. The Belarus based artist is beloved for his productions on Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat Music and Cid Inc’s Replug Records. Now considered one of the scene’s most consistent and also prolific artists Michael began the year with a string of remixes for Juicebox Music, Plaisirs Sonores Records, Proton Music and Specific Music. A heavy workload and yet he continues to operate at a creative peak here with a superb remix of 'Beluga'. Clocking in at nearly nine wondrous minutes, it’s a dynamic journey of dark electronics and crunchy rhythmic themes. Heavy stabs combined with a meditative arp adorn the electric groove, while percussive flurries and boundless energy bridges make for many magic moments along way. Effortless in delivery it sits as a strong stand alone piece as well as a perfect complement to the previous two versions. It caps off a brilliant release from Strange Town Recordings, who continue to deliver quality progressive music. Highly recommended.
