Review: Herm�tico � Metro EP (Inoquo 043)

Herm�tico�s latest EP on the Spanish Inoquo netlabel is definitely one to keep in mind. After his highly acclaimed �Cocinando Garmonbozia EP�, released about a year ago, Herm�tico is back for more.

�Senzeni Na� is clearly the strongest one of the package for me with a sort of Berghain-esque feel to it, but then slightly quirkier. A brooding bass covered with precise hi-hats lead us to some fresh modulating drips, breaking up somewhere halfway the track. Herm�tico only uses just enough sonic elements to keep things nicely stripped down and floating. The track provides the necessary dance floor requirements but we find tightly filtered riffs as well, ensuring a vivid and textured soundscape. �Recolectar Mercurio� has a more deep & dubby approach, instantly reminding me of Maurizio/Basic Channel tunes, but monotonity is quickly broken up by sweet organic stabs, which make this track something to float away on in the early hours. Worth mentioning is the tender �2+3�, sounding like a perpetual ticking clock, skillfully layered with subtle soothing elements, injecting this piece with emotion. Two thumbs up.

music survey

The Max Planck Society & FOEM launch the Digital Music Survey: "Our aim is to analyze current internet music trends and development. Over the past several years the music industry has been turned upside down. The business models that had worked have now suddenly and irrevocably become obsolete. The effects of this have spread beyond the music industry, affecting film, radio and print. The music business was the harbinger of these rapid changes, it's new rules will become the guidelines of how new business models will be developed for film, radio, print and beyond."

Nice summer

[Miga_v16] Jon Herranz "Nice summer" from Miga on Vimeo.



//////// eng ////////////

[Miga32] "Music for camping" is the first Lp of the canarian artist Rominger. Living in Barcelona since the end of 90�s, he has collaborated in so many different musical (Sobreimagen, Velcro) and artistic projects (Pendrive, Plug Festival).

If we talk about music styles, Rominger moves inside the huge space between pop and electronic music, creating new contrasts and musical flavours. Leo (trumpet, synth, voices) and Yeray (drums), have been able to give expressiveness and character to this work, making an album that becomes into a great introduction letter.

In [Miga_v16] "Nice Summer", video clip that completes this release, Jon Herranz gives life to some of the characters that can be found in the particular world of Rominger.
