you can always expect quality of the greatest extent when a pépe release appears on your screen. the title track makes me want to make the 30 minute drive to the beach, while 'Benzine Electronics' makes me feel like I'm floating through outer-space aimlessly
Favorite track: Benzine Electronics.
Pépe joins the Lobster fam after a stunning, twinkling EP of miniature electro & house for Renascence. Taking aim at wider sonic territory, Lemon Fanta showcases the Valencia producers multi-floral sound palette across three shifting times and moodscapes.
Rainfall (Pts I & II) is the long and winding A-side. Sounding like a mid-noughties extended piano house number that could have landed squarely on Running Back, this is a reality-squeezing, rainstick-baiting slab of late eve euphoria. Hand-slapped congos pop under timba, claps and a translucent drum machine bedrock. A warm vibes closer and emotionally charged night ended.
Title track Lemon Fanta ups the zest with an ante-kicked 'n' stepped whizz through stomping drum machine programming and overdriven square-wave basslines, all preceded by enveloping filter-chords and a chatter Spanish lilt.
Benzine Electronics rounds out the release, taking a stop start approach to song structure, hemmed to rhythmically hypnotic underlay of gentle synths, sparkling & stuttering arps, and a soft bed of 808
