ABSLTD05 | Hatti Vatti + Es.tereo
12" VINYL SINGLE + DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
8th July 2016
'An ode to the city of Berlin'
After a brief while of ‘studio silence’, Hatti Vatti returns to Absys Records and joins forces with Es.tereo, the outcome of which is a brilliant EP called “Maps” – yet another vinyl addition to the label’s already impressive catalogue. So, what to expect inside? Quality over quantity, as Synkro, Doc Scott or Presha Samurai would put it. Each of the three tracks included in the EP is a definition of what both of these super producers feel best at – the deeper side of +/- 170 BPM electronic music. You can say that it’s a contemporary face of the more gentle form of half-tempo drum & bass, but you can also say that, simply speaking, it’s a healthy portion of good electronic music with soul.
“Kolours” will enchant you with the warmth of its bassline and the richness of the background elements, “Forgotten Scores” will captivate you with the spacious sound of the percussion layer and the variety of bits and pieces surrounding it, and the more minimalistic, mysterious, and a bit more broken-beated “Maps” proves that content is much more telling than form. To put it in a nutshell, ABSLTD005 is Hatti Vatti and Es.tereo in their top shape.
Since 2009, vinyl releases for English, Irish and Polish labels have marked this Polish producer apart for his cinematic take on bass-driven electronic music. His first album release “Worship Nothing” LP (2014) sees Hatti Vatti’s artistic journey culminate into a single, coherent vision, a vision that is simultaneously spacious and deeply intimate. HV was promoting his last solo album with performances in Poland, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Czech Republic, Belarus, Belgium, Greenland and Japan. He’s working with regarded polish musicians in other projects: HV/NOON (with Noon), Nanook of the North (with Stefan Wesolowski) and FFRANCIS (with Misia Furtak)
Inspired by his hometown of Berlin, Es.tereo's music is like an atmospheric, ethereal sound-novel, taking the listener deep into beautiful soundscapes with clouds of thundering basslines, flittering swarms of razors harp beats and touching mists of abstract melodies. Experimental and forward thinking, his sound is refreshingly innovative and distinctly unique. Releases on labels like 'Deep Soul Music', 'Samurai Horo', 'IM:Ltd', 'Hidden Hawaii' and 'Urban Poetry' have shown his huge potential and made it clear that Es.tereo is helping to shape the future of Bass Music. With gigs across Germany and the whole of Europe he is a crusader of sound, capturing every dance floor with his progressive sets and turning them into wild, open spaces where everything can happen.
