Ciclé Records is a UK based house music record label, which has a stripped back and techy style with immersive atmosphere and strong basslines.
The imprint’s new release is a groove-laden single by Bass On The Flow, who’s a Brazilian artist from Florianópolis. He has previously worked with imprints ranging from Platform 7 to Fleshtones, and this release showcases his upbeat style which fuses flowing percussion with trippy vocal textures.
Bass On The Flow is a skilled DJ who has translated his innate knowledge of how to work a dance floor into his productions, and this release showcases the deep tech/minimal side of his sound.
“Ziriguidum” is the solo original track on the release, and it opens with the warmth of its thickset bassline which forms a foundation for shuffling hi-hats and atmospheric textures. Rhythmic vocal stutters add to the groove, while sensual vocal tones become a focal point. The four-to-the-floor groove switches to breakbeats during the breakdown section, which builds tension before the funk-fuelled bassline drops back in, and the track lifts up a gear.
