According to Wikipedia, Nibiru is a term in the Akkadian language, translating to “crossing” or “point of transition”, especially of rivers. In Babylonian astronomy, the term Nibiru refers to the equinox and the astronomical objects associated with it. And that’s where the impressive Mexican Dark Disco and Techno producer Roy Parra aka Tiempo De Maldad sought inspiration for his new release on the cherished label Csk:Beat.
This is the second time we have the privilege of being chosen to review a Tiempo De Maldad’s piece. Despite being a challenging task, it brings the priceless reward of immersing in Roy’s world in a more insightful approach. The track we were asked to premiere seems to combine many of his vast influences: Sounds Of Nibiru, a nervous, obscure and energetic cut, combines throbbing analog synth layers with arpeggiated acid lines and trippy trance pads for a relentless true music experience.
The 4-track Equinox EP brings also solid remixes by Roliva, a young and promising Mexican DJ and producer, and Csk, the label boss himself. Kudos to our prolific and acclaimed K-Effect for another top-notch mastering job.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Beatport page of the label.
