Established in 2020, the Spanish label Espacio Cielo, curated by prolific and skilled producer Parissior (SXDNS206/FREEDL043), has been slowly carving its name in stone among the most important Indie Dance/Dark Disco imprints out there by delivering a solid catalogue of releases featuring not only acclaimed artists but also interesting newcomers.
For its forthcoming episode, Espacio brings back the seasoned made-in-Belgium duo Marching Machines (SXDNS276) with their insightful and imperative “Hymn” EP – and the lads do not come alone: The ace remixes provided by none other than master Damon Jee and the label boss himself are the icing on the cake. Both, by the way, adopted the same “formula” for their collaborations: Respecting the originals by keeping most of the main elements but adding their widely known characteristic sonorities.
The three originals (Chrome, Empire, and Holograma), in turn, present themselves as a true showcase of both the technique and the creativity of the Machines. Their heavy and dense but highly danceable atmosphere – granted by vociferous acid lines, trippy pads, and a plethora of throbbing synth layers – could be best described as “darkness meets groove”, exactly the kind of soundtrack that we expect to hear when the machines start to march.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Beatport page of the label.
