This is the kind of release through which you are submitted to so many sound experiences that it is as if you are having an open-eyed dream and the scenery is the complex and creative mind of the producer which, in turn, is melted and twisted by the mind and desire of another producer who decided to invade the journey with his lysergic remix. This is “Patches”, the meticulous and plural forthcoming EP of the São Paulo-based artist Nørus on the label DSRPTV Records, also hailing from Brazil. Drum ‘n’ Bass, Indie Dance, Synthpop, Synthwave, Cosmic Disco, and Experimental are the most noticeable references in the EP – others lie sub-layered, lurking, testing our patience, ears, and memories.
Premiered here, the luscious interpretation of the title track made with love by acclaimed Paulista artist Vitor Munhoz. In his version, the delicate but powerful vocals of singer Nora Bago sound trippier and more profound, as if she were, now, also enticing us on a journey through her own mind. In slowing things down – from 168 to 148 BPM –, Vitor turned the vibrant and frenzied original cut into a more ethereal and sober theme, enriching, even more, the vast soundscape presented in the EP.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
