Music Review: Sauchelli - Wanderlust EP [Fun Records 011]
- Published on Monday, 16 March 2020 18:59
Berlin-based Sauchelli is part of the second wave of Argentinian artists, which see on respected acts such as Barem, Federico Molinari, Franco Cinelli, Alexis Cabrera, Jorge Savoretti some real reference points. And it's right in Barem and Cabrera's famous Fun Records that Sauchelli has dropped the wicked "Wanderlust" EP., which consists of 4 original dancefloor-oriented jams.
Opener "Funktion Two" is a crazy electro tool with rubbery drums and '90s rave-ish synths that bring the track in a freaky direction. The name obviously reminds to the popular British loudspeaker manufacturer and we're sure that this one will work pretty well on that system!
Up next, "Minibar" is another paranoid number with wobbling basslines, tons of analogue bleeps, and infectious drums that roll above an incessant white noise movement.
Title cut "Blind Folded" seems to hit less hard than the previous ones, but this is just a first impression. The monstrous bass race along in supple and rubbery fashion as deep synths weave in and out and sci-fi sounds and fx add further detail.
On the closing "Fun Key", Sauchelli goes jazzy, with subtle piano keys and sinister chords that perfectly fit with the female vocal samples and the solid well-programmed groove, making of this one another irresistible club weapon.
