Juaan – Soy Piola EP (PTN020)
Igniting the flight for number 20 on Anthea’s prolific Partisan label is the young and talented Argentinian, JUAAN. His direct and energetic productions have nudged him on to the radar of the underground, moving further in an upward trajectory with his “Soy Piola” EP.
Built upon distinct and hypnotic synths is the A1 “Eclipc”, its transcending energy will become etched in your memory, creating a particular mood on the most discerning of dance floors. Bringing a spaced out yet dramatic vibe to the EP is “Mestreso”, an acid infused quest to an otherworldly atmosphere.
The enormous “Puede Llegar” launches us into the B side, the tight and punchy drum arrangement creates a sophisticated groove, playing co-pilot to the enthusiastic elastic bass that bubbles throughout. Rounding off the EP is the sub-heavy title track “Soy Piola”, a tripped out and stripped back voyage, laced with acid splashes ready to stretch the mind of the listeners.
Although only young Juan F’s outlook with music is mature, he draws inspiration and influences from the 90’s, molding this ethos into his own modern day interpretation, aiming to create something timeless for the dancers of today, but reminiscent of the dusty sounds of the past; something he also aims to enforce within his DJ sets, never restrained by genre.
