Anestie Gomez is not a new name in the scene. His meticulous arrangements, a naïve approach to electronic and an unprecedented love for analog synthesizers have made him stand out over the last years as one of the youngest and most promising talents rising from Greece.
The four-tracker 'Short Stories for Tall People' marks his debut on Pluie/Noir and showcases his versatility both as a story-teller and a groove maker, with the perfect balance between machine rhythms and organic warmth for the upcoming seasons. A-side’s “No Regrets” (A1) is the EP’s warmest piece, with a clearly light-hearted approach to musical composition reminiscent of Mediterranean sunny days, while "Gurunext" (A2) shifts the tone entirely to a sonic palette of robotic glitches where groove is key, pleasing the micro-house aficionados craving detail and swing. The B-side has Anestie Gomez exploring a deeper organicity: 'Surmena' (B1) is a hypnosis-inducing, constantly moving composition clearly aimed at after-hours where time and space seem untraceable, and 'Supervixen' (B2) is the EP’s jazziest exploration around heavy drum programming, swing, and deep low-ends that ebb and flow with a very peculiar yet organic steadiness.
