Bongani Zulu Huerco S.’ dusty and “improvised but premeditated” production never seems to fail and Untitled is an amazing example.

From the provocative Press On to the trip of Untitled, this EP is too much. Favorite track: Untitled.

Thibaut Devigne In between deep house and ambiant, another very fine signature from Opal Tapes. Not everyone will like it, but I like the dark tones and cold atmosphere of this album Favorite track: Untitled.

Zoltán Velkei There is something really special in these tracks. Abstract and hypnotising yet works on the dancefloor really well. The last piece is truly outstanding on its own. Favorite track: Elma (Ruff Rub).

Gregory Bruccoleri Really enjoying this artist's output across the board. Has an Andy Stott vibe yet not at all. There is this mix of house, Boards of Canada and just space that is really exciting to me. Hoping to hear more.

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Repress Edition of 400 copies of this 40 minute killer from Huerco S* The fourth Boomkat Edition is also our 2nd loan from Opal Tapes (after the 1991 LP), giving a much needed vinyl issue to that knockout 'Untitled' cassette from Huerco S. Blending the sort of smudge-house tropes found on NWAQ's 'The Dead Bears' or Actress's 'Hazyville' with a sidelong piece of lushest new age kosmische, it made a strong impression on our playlists and just begged to be pressed on a (slightly) more democratic format.

    The likes of 'Press On (Ruff Rub)', with its suggestive moans and coos laced to warm, doped-up bass flesh and cracked Vangelis synth strokes, makes for a proper scene setter at the start or end of a night, and the tense sensuality of 'Elma (Ruff Rub)' is deep house at its most spectral, abstract, mixing elegant melodic pirouettes with coarse drums and druggy sub heft, spiking the dance with subtly sleazy intent. Drifting from the 'floor, the exquisite, BoC-like boogie massage of 'Hiromis Theme' acts as a sort of waiting room or new age interzone for the standout flipside which gives the EP its name; 20 minutes of blissfully evocative synth float starring his buddy Exael and hitting right between the eyes of early Emeralds, the lushest library records and Rachel Evans at her sanguine best.

about

Blending the sort of smudge-house tropes found on NWAQ’s ‘The Dead Bears’ or Actress’s ‘Hazyville’ alongside an extended 20 minute/sidelong piece of smoked-out bliss on the flip.

‘Press On (Ruff Rub)’ oozes doped-up bass flesh alongside cracked Vangelis synth strokes, making for a proper scene setter, while the tense sensuality of ‘Elma (Ruff Rub)’ is House music at its most spectral, abstract, mixing elegant melodic pirouettes with coarse drums and druggy subs.

Drifting from the ‘floor, the exquisite, BoC-like boogie massage of ‘Hiromis Theme’ acts as a sort of new age interzone before the standout flipside which gives the EP its name; a 20 minute, blissfully evocative fever-dream hitting right between the eyes of early Emeralds and Huerco’s much loved later albums for Proibito and his own West Mineral imprint.
