Sumau Azuriu Ep on Soul.On Records


Reviewed by Leander

Next up on Moscow’s Soul.On imprint is the talented duo Sumau, with the carefully crafted Azuriu EP. Dubbed down drums and micro house elements drive the opener “Azuriu” into a realm of getting completely engulfed by sound and rhythm. “Kremerata” is spiced with minimalistic percussive elements, accompanying blissful yet melancholic orchestral tones.

Vincenzo Monastra reinterprets “Kremerata” with a soulful, yet dark remix, taking the listener on a long triply ride, filled with smart grooves and slow, progressing suspense.

Sumau continues smoothly with “Orchestra”, another deep running track, filled with melancholic surprises and forward thinking grooves. Little Hado remixes “Orchestra”  beautifully, adding his own take on sound to it, with swaying orchestral sweeps, smooth bass stabs and minimalistic percussion work.

Another beauty of an EP from Soul.On Records, a label continuing to release true experiences.
