Buenos Aires’ Juan Hansen lands on Bedouin’s Human By Default this March with his ‘Telling Me Something’ EP.
Opening with a dose of organic percussion and a plodding bassline, title track ‘Telling Me Something’ whirs through a series of delectable analogue tweaks, followed by the irrepressible ‘Kulú’ which brings pounding kick drums and zany effects around warped vocals and chugging low end for energetic crowds.
On ‘Cuatro Bajos’ Hansen delivers delicate, memorable melodies over crisp drum patterns which unfurl across the track’s duration, while ‘Buenos Aires’ sees Hansen team up with percussionist Martin Rizzola, with the duo’s styles gelling effortlessly as Rizzola’s bouncing, lively percussion aligns flawlessly across the crystal clear production.
Previously appearing on John Digweed’s Bedrock and Frankey & Sandrino’s Sum Over Histories labels, Argentina’s Juan Hansen is a composer and recording artist who’s renowned live sets have taken him to Burning Man, Boiler Room and beyond.
