A. ‘Tanto Amor’ (14.27)
B. ‘Wasame’ (13.26)
Diogo‘s meticulous arrangements and idiosyncratic approach to electronic
music have made him shine over the last years as one of the youngest and
most promising talents rising from Portugal.
‘Tanto Amor’ is a 2-tracker EP of expansive excursions rich in detail,
expansive low-ends, and rhythmic structure, and not only is this his solo
debut on Pluie/Noir, it’s also a warm and welcome comeback for the
imprint after a long hiatus period.
‘Tanto Amor’ (A) is a haunting composition of marching drums and crisp
hi-hats, but its ever-mutating melodic arrangement, along with Alba’s
hypnosis-inducing vocal tricks, creates a wide dynamic spectrum of sound
capable of filling any type of sonic space.
The flip-side ‘Wasame’ (B) adopts a freestyle, delirium-inducing approach
where wacky minimalism and repetition do all the mind-tricks. Elements
communicate and move in a very liquid, organic way yet never losing the
drive, giving the overall palette a slightly jazzy, improvisational tone.
The EP’s artwork also sees a debut of another Portuguese talent, Pics of
You, using solely analog photography as his tool of expression, fitting to
this installment of an ever-strengthening series of releases Pluie/Noir
collectors were missing.
