Amor Satyr





1x Vinyl 12"



Release date

Jun 1, 2023

There are no more boundaries in dance music. Transfer, the latest EP from Amor Satyr, not only pulls heavily from trance, but does so while also repurposing vocal clips lifted from Brazilian baile funk. On paper, it seems like an almost unholy musical union, but in the skilled hands of this Parisian, the combination is straight-up deadly. This is body music, and while the record's breakneck tempos and blazing synths are fully rooted in freewheeling rave traditions, its thundering low-end is muscular enough to push even the biggest favela soundsystems into the red. The EP's speedy title track rolls out crunchy melodies atop a broken rhythm and thick sheets of bass, but it's "Quer Dan?ar?" that perhaps best embodies the music's dual spirit, its swirly psychedelics unfolding atop booming, electro-indebted breakbeats and a potent array of face-smacking percussion. That array also includes a variety of finely sliced Brazilian vocal chops, which Amor Satyr expertly employs to punctuate the song's already dizzying drum attack. It's a technique he returns to on "Rebola," injecting a bit more life into the track's rumbling gallop, before wrapping up the EP on a brighter, bouncier note with the effervescent "Bebe."

Four devastatingly precise workouts from two of Portugal's leading techno talents, VOX99 and VIL, drawing on the sound of late-night (and morning-after) raves at some of Lisbon's darkest venues. The dub techno moods found on 'Sqs1' and 'Sqs2' are split by their differing sense of space, the first claustrophobic where the second expands. 'Suli's Tiger' is the grainiest cut, while the loopy 'Not Proud Of My Behaviour' provides an unashamed hands-in-the-air moment. In other words, an all-round killer. Early support by DVS1.
