Leite Dos Santos – Exoteric EP [USR014]

Undersound Recordings opens the new decade with an electro EP from Leite Dos Santos, alias of an unknown producer. This EP fuses old and new school electro vibes, all tied together by emotional melodies and undertones. The record opens with two broken tracks: ‘Codex Alexandrinus’, a classy track with the highest pace of the EP and the dreamier ‘Texto Sagrado’. On the flipside, the producer switches to a 4/4 formula with ‘Tanakh’ and ‘A Cidade Santa’, closing the EP with melancholic pads over arpeggiated saw basslines.

Jared Wilson – Roland Acid Again EP [USR013]

Undersound returns with a four tracker of restless acid sketches with one of our favourite contemporary Detroit producers, Jared Wilson. As the title “Roland Acid Again” suggests, the EP is a homage to the classic synthesizers that defined electronic music. The EP kicks off with “Always Something” and “Roland Acid Again”, where acidic lines are interlaced with signature Roland drums to convey different moods. Side B showcases a more reflective side of Wilson’s sound, with “Peanutbutter Halloween Saltmix” and the more direct “Nov 27” which closes the EP with its squelchy melodies.

The various EP opens with V9843 from Heath Brunner aka Silicon, previously released on the “There Was a Day” white label on V-max records and is a driving melodic techno classic. Next up there’s Manic (Maana Mix) by Erotek, doing what he does best with a ghetto electro beat. On the flipside there’s “Paradox”, an old archival track by Orland Voorn reminiscent of his earlier techno works from the 90s. Eoism close the EP with “Floaters”, a mellow electro track in the vein of the artists previous output on our label.

Nicola Kazimir – Liber Al Vel Legis EP [USR003]

This EP represents a further manifestation of sound-expression over sound-design. Each track has it’s own characteristics. It’s a symbiotic EP which combines vintage analogue gear with live digital effects; everything is done in a moment – manipulating things that you can’t calculate but feel.
