Quetame Records is a new deep and organic house label that’s headed up by a trio of artists including El Mundo & Zazou and Niki Sadeki. The debut release is a stunning four-track EP by El Mundo & Zazou whose eloquent style of soaring melodies fused with delicate percussion is on full display.
Based in The Netherlands, El Mundo has performed as a DJ and live-act together with Zazou across The World and released music on labels such as Do Not Sit On The Furniture Recordings, Kindisch, Souq Records and Earthly Delights. Zazou is a Berlin-based artist, multi-instrumentalist and regular collaborator with El Mundo, but he has also released solo tracks with imprints such as Laut und Luise and Rebellion der Traumer.
‘Sands of Time’ opens the release with its soothing atmosphere and haunting vocals nestled amidst a dreamscape of ethereal synths which are underpinned by a throbbing bassline. Second on the EP with jovial melodies and digitised vocals, ‘Watch Me Burn’ has a cosmic vibe that sets a trajectory towards the stars with its expansive sound design. After a cinematic opening, ‘The River’ is third on the release with its haunting vocals and poignant piano. Like a choir of angels, it’s eloquently beautiful while also retaining an understated aesthetic. ‘Golden Skies’ closes out the EP with fluttering synths and crisp percussive textures that combine to create a hypnotising groove with intimate emotion and majestic grace.
This truly is a magical EP with stunning vocals amidst its dazzling array of vibrant textures and nomadic grooves. You can now listen to the full premiere of ‘The River’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
