Argentina’s Nodo & Mule (ARG) make their debut on Loot Recordings with three wonderfully deep tracks backed with remixes from Viktop and Lucefora.
Nodo & Mule (ARG) are relative newcomers to the scene, bringing their fresh take on emotive house music from the streets of Argentina to the world, via imprints like Oleeva, Canopy Sounds and Magician on Duty. Now they join forces with the always impressive Loot Recordings for an EP that is set to cement their position on the international stage.
Title cut ‘Amistad’ is an elegant offering of deep, summertime house, a slow burner backed by the rhythm of crisp drums and bottomless low end. A dreamy, hazy piano drifts throughout the track, immersing the listener with delicate notes and warm chords.
‘Ambar’ centers on a medley of gentle piano chords and a striking vocal, wrapped with organic, lush drum patterns. The original is complimented by a remix from Viktop (Den- ver by way of Miami, Do Not Sit on the Furniture resident) who delivers an intense reworking of the original, giving the vocal a more ethereal effect and incorporating the piano riffs and chords to make this a standout reinterpretation.
Last of the original cuts is the mysterious ‘Azahar’ featuring a mesmerizing arrangement of tribal percussion and tinkling pianos which offers up a melancholic soundtrack for desert sunrises and island sunsets. Fellow Argentinian Lucefora turns in his “Into The Wild” remix, a gorgeous version that maintains the groove of the original combined with playful melodies and euphoric vocals that hit all the right emotions.
This is another winning release from the Loot Recordings stable and their latest international signing.
