Cielo Records is a new label project based in France from JC Laurent that features four underground and original works.
The inaugural EP comes from the label boss himself who has over ten years of productions under his belt for the likes of Coyu’s Suara, Abstract Division’s Dynamic Reflection, and Deepak Sharma’s Hidden Recordings amongst others.
Opening the release in style with “Prajna”, it has a quirky and brooding slice of hypnotic techno with cycling sounds and accents.
“Expander” opts for a raw percussion rhythm with bubbling atmospherics and swelling, phasing energy instilled into its spacey vibe.
Stripping things down is “Transparency” that flaunts analogue elements with a less is more approach allowing the sci-fi details to really create a dystopian atmosphere.
“Trikaya” adds a whole new angle to the EP with a stunning breakbeat and IDM-influenced track that will surely spin a dance floor into a frenzy with its creative style.
