Slovenian label, Danza Macabra Records was founded in 2010 by producers Edin Cuturic and Martin Rojnik and in the last two years has become a beacon for quality electronic music. Releases from the duo under their Danza Macabra moniker alongside singles from Patrick Zigon helped establish the label with a string of quality records backed with some high profile remixes. From the summer of 2012 the label has embarked upon a series of multi artist EPs that have seen Cuturic and Rojnik share releases with some of the hottest producers out there including Axel Bartsch, Echonomist & Matthias Vogt.
Now the Danza Macabra team is set to release their third multi artist EP, this time featuring original tracks from Larsson, Rico Puestel & Owen Howells.
The ‘Let Fantasy Be Heard’ EP kicks off with Berlin based Larsson, a producer who has seen his music released through labels such as Bpitch, Traum & Get Physical. ‘Late Night Fantasy’ is a deep and pulsing slice of electronic music that fuses elements of minimal house & techno in perfect balance; taut percussion, warm bass tones and a simple top riff make for an understated floorfiller, quality stuff. The second track sees Germany’s Rico Puestel deliver the epic ‘They Rang, They Rang & I Parsed the Ceiling’, a ten minute plus journey into mesmerizing madness with tightly looped piano samples building before giving way to a laid back and melodic groove, backed with a low key rhythm section, sublime.
The penultimate cut has the Danza Macabra boys drop the excellent ‘Chaos Rains’ a dark edged, tech fuelled affair that features pitch shifted vocals, melancholic synth lines and bubblin’ bass. Finally we have Londoner and Shades of Grey label boss Owen Howells whose track ‘The Door’ completes the EP with its superb dub techno influences and rolling warehouse sensibilities.
This is another sterling EP from the Danza Macabra crew and further marks the label out as one to watch, enjoy!
