544 // XCI – Prometheus

XCI's contribution to the very first release of the French label Estuary Tapes is simply godlike!

Hailing from Saint Brieuc, France, Estuary Tapes kicks off its story by bringing to life a bold eleven-track compilation. On board: Tabensi, Théo Muller, and Transe Ar Gwez, the guides of the journey, plus Los Pashminas, A-Tweed (SXDNS222), Oltrefuturo, Kendu Bari, Shjva, XCI, Isabel Del Bosco, and Orphic – a true constellation of young and talented producers from various corners of this unfair and doomed little planet of ours who spared no efforts to bring the best of their games for the compilation.

From dusk till dawn, from darkness to light, the release encompasses many a genre and aims nothing but to please the fans of high-quality underground electronic music out there.

Premiered here, the stunning closing theme of the VA comes from the mastermind of the creative Portuguese virtuoso XCI. Named after the Greek god of fire, who is best known for defying his Olympian counterparts by stealing fire from them and giving it to humanity in the form of technology, knowledge, and more generally civilization, “Prometheus” comes packed with a magnificent cosmic and starry aura, as if its mesmerising synth layers were paying a tribute to the beautiful sky of Athens in 3000 BCE.

You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Bandcamp page of the label.
