Kamilo Sanclemente & David Barragan – Case [B4U Records]

Release Promo Review

B4U Records ushers in the fall season with a new collaborative project from Kamilo Sanclemente & David Barragan. The former, long regarded as one of Colombia’s foremost progressive house talents has found a home on Beatfreak Recordings, Beat Boutique, Clubsonica Records, Einmusika and Parquet Recordings, while earning continued support from Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Guy J. The latter, also hailing from Colombia and previously known as Dabeat, has now adopted his given name going forward. Much like Kamilo, David has showcased his music on a wide assortment of the underground’s highly regarded imprints, most notably Beatfreak Recordings, Proton Music and Perspectives Digital. Frequent studio partners in the past, Kamilo and David now unite for their first ever three track artist showcase entitled ‘Exosphere’.

Having recorded more than 20 original and remix productions since the inception of their partnership, the creative synergy between Kamilo and David has only grown. It’s a path which has ultimately led to what is perhaps their finest work in ‘Exosphere’. Fascinating from the start, it’s perfectly sculpted beats are dominant yet warm, anchoring what is a fluid, free flowing foundation. Delicate and profound, melodic clusters steal the air as layers of percussion move through swirling atmospherics. Subtle modulation and celestial pads advance the narrative into the second of two breaks, marrying acid like rhythms and ghosting vocal wails which precede a glowing finale.

The journey continues with the percussive vibes of ‘Tars’. Rhythmically captivating, it’s exotic layers are finely tuned as robust tones create momentum throughout the foundation. Playful arps soon become a focal point, flowing through quirky hooks as enchanting overlays heighten emotional response leading into the second act. Played out over three magical minutes, the centrepiece is a joyous affair, complete with charming melodic concepts and a flair for the dramatic, as cinematic spheres elevate mood, eventually peaking for an exhilarating drop.

The release is capped off in fine fashion with the deeper qualities of ‘Case’. Nostalgic and groovy in equal measure, Kamilo and David marry placid motifs with meditative rhythms and tranquil textures. It’s a unique and hugely compelling storyboard, perhaps one of the duo’s most reflective to date. A highly memorable creation, likely one to cap off a night and most certainly one to program for special occasions. It rounds out what is a gorgeous collection of music from the Colombian duo, one that takes B4U Records into the year’s final quarter on a high note.

The Senegambian stone circles lie in The Gambia north of Janjanbureh and in central Senegal.

With an approximate area of 30,000 km²,[1] they are sometimes divided into the Wassu (Gambian) and Sine-Saloum (Senegalese) circles, but this is purely a national division. According to UNESCO, the Senegambian stone circles are “the largest concentration of stone circles seen anywhere in the world.”[2][3] “These sites, Wassu, and Kerbatch in Gambia, and Wanar and Sine Ngayene in Senegal, represent an extraordinary concentration of more than 1,000 stone circles and related tumuli spread over a territory of 100 km wide and 350 km in length, along the River Gambia.[4] Wiki

Once in a Blue Moon

Because the term “once in a blue moon” is around for a reason — they’re pretty rare. According to Space.com, they occur about once every 2.7 years. And Time and Date noted that having a double blue moon only happens around three to five times within a century.Jan 31, 2018

To do something “once in a blue moon” is to do it very rarely: “That company puts on a good performance only once in a blue moon.” The phrase refers to the appearance of a second full moon within a calendar month, which actually happens about every thirty-two months.
