Berlin based Capablanca & T.Keeler return to the Gomma label with some outstanding psychedelic electronica with a balaeric twist that is already picking up heavyweight support..
Hugo Capablanca – resident DJ at Broken Hearts Club and man of Los Massieras joins forces with Swedish amigo T. Keeler for their second release on the Gomma label. Their debut ‘No Hay Ritmo’ was an epic percussive disco affair that garnered broad support; now the pair dig deep into the realms of proto electronica for a single that showcases their wilder side.
The single kicks off with the original version of ‘Acido’, an epic thirteen minute excursion into the outer realms of cosmic electronica, fusing elements of disco, techno and more besides to create a record that that has a truly psychedelic soundtrack vibe to it.
Next up we have the excellent ‘Tropanado’ that sees the pair lay down a guitar driven, delay drenched affair that melds live elements with dubbed out electronica to great effect. The packages is completed by a remix of ‘Acido’ from Sweden’s Name in Lights, who deliver a pulsing deep house workout with a disco edge.
‘Acido’ is another killer release from the outstanding Gomma label and once again showcases the label’s commitment to great music, regardless of genre. Already picking up support from the likes of Andrew Weatherall, who dropped the release at this year’s Lovebox festival to a huge reaction, Prins Thomas & Tim Sweeney, you are bound to be hearing this plenty more in the months to come.
The video for “Ácido!” is a 13 minute film made by Flâneur, a white hot, brand new Berlin studio that just kicked off and already developed projects with heavyweights like Henrik Vibskov. The film was shot in an recent underground art show in Berlin where Capablanca exhibited his installation piece “Zero Point Field” parts of it can be seen in the film, shot and edited by polyvalent artist, auteur and film maker Tanja Siren and starring the dazzling Olympia Spanou.
The story is only half told. Reminiscent of Jodorowsky’s films and magic and Maya Deren’s universe and aesthetics, Ácido unfolds as a suggestive ritual, where lucid dreams, reality and reincarnation as kittens might end up being be the very same thing.
