Alex Metric & Ten Ven – Castellar

Following their acclaimed Anjunadeep release ‘Otic’, which saw support from Pete Tong and Annie Mac, powerhouse pair Alex Metric & Ten Ven are back with the ’Saudade EP’. Reinforcing their chemistry as a duo, the ’Saudade EP’ is a showcase of hard-hitting synths and deft percussive builds.

Opening track ’Saudade’ is characteristically dark and progressive, favouring staccato synths on a driving bassline. Hard and fast, second cut ‘What U Need’ provides an intense contemporary take on the classic vocal-led anthem, whilst closing track ‘Castellar’ is the lightest on the release, combining detuned toplines and stuttered mallets suited to sunlit dancefloors.
