ALEX FONT presents “MIS HERMANOS RUMANOS” (acmé 005)
Valencia’s Alex Font welcomes Romania’s Sepp to Acme for the first instalment of ‘Mis Hermanos Rumanos’ for an intricate split vinyl release limited to 250 copies.Acme boss Alex Font has been producing nuanced house music for over a decade, cultivating a signature style that blends funk, jazz, Latin, and techno whilst fine-tuning his skills as a club DJ throughout Europe for years. Meanwhile, Uvar and Catren founder Sepp, who’s one of the most influential producers of the new Romania Minimal-Techno scene, has kept equally busy creating and curating quality minimal, including appearances on Apotek Studio and Ada Kaleh Romania, not to mention an album on Uvar. First up, Sepp’s ‘Cantecul Fusului’ combines rolling grooves with hypnotic atmospherics before Alex Font’s ‘Murph’ injects a visceral low-end bounce alongside slithering percussion. Next, Font keeps the reigns with ‘Mambo 3’, a heady dance-floor number riddled with crunchy drums and a dusty aesthetic before ‘Listen To Me’ closes the EP with the eerie phrase just listen to me echoed among crackling ambience for a meditative finishing touch.
