Berlin-based Out-Er returns this March with Simone Gatto‘s, ‘Motherland‘ EP, comprising four original cuts from the Italian producer.
Since its launch Out-Er has delivered underground house and techno of uncompromising quality, with original work and remixes from the likes of The Analogue Cops, Luciano Esse and Santorini. Tipping its focus towards the dub aesthetics of electronic music and embracing records instilled with attention to detail.
Title track ‘Motherland‘ opens the release here; a heady Techno cut employing warbling synth lines, rumbling low-end tones and punchy drums to create an ever-evolving, hypnotic record.
Next up is ‘November‘, taking things deeper with ethereal pads and shuffling 909 drums, drenched in reverb to add a cavernous atmosphere hidden in the depths of the track.
Entering the B-Side of the record we have ‘They Are Watching Us‘, the track relies on a hooky progression with a leading synth stab carrying the melodic movement, while subtle nuances such as filter sweeps, reverb bursts, and elongated delays paint the bigger picture.
To close the release Gatto turns in ‘Scorpion‘, an off-kilter broken number, featuring crunchy drums, disorienting resonant tones and an arp-style acid hook that further fuels its mesmeric, alluring vibe.
