Alma Soul Music is a respectable label in the house and deep house scene, managed by D Low and Javier Varez it’s active since 2009 and they’re going to get the 100th digital release published, they also make some excellent vinyl only records. “Alma Limited Vinyl 003” features Javier Varez and Sosandlow, who deliver four nice and interesting house productions.
The A side is entirely made by Javier. Starting from “Ciencia Friccion”, the introspective sonorities of the piece can catch the listener’s mood and arouse melancholic sensations. The piano chord, the arpeggio and the vocal are distinctive and contribute to get this kind of emotion.
As opposite, “Inmarcesible” shares a happy and positive vibe: there are some kind of instruments used also in the A1, but these have been placed in a classy house music context.
On the Flip the Sosandlow duo takes the control and goes totally dancefloor oriented with their infectious style: the drum loop of “El Mito” is simple but effective, and after adding over the main synth and bassline it becomes hot and catchy, while “De La Caverna” closes the EP with its dirty electro influence, which is melt in a interesting way with the tech house style of the track.
