The eleventh issue from the Spanish outlet underyourseat is a 4-track EP signed by the Canarian talent C.E.S.M aka Cristian Santana, for a first-time appearance on the groove-driven label.

Starting off, “After Coffee” is one classic roller with one tight bassline written over a sharp kick pattern, a moving selection of sizzly hats, and a playful conga sequence, all brought to a groovy feeling with some delicious synth stabs.

Then comes “Intergalactic” with its dreamy pads going all over the place. Intertwined acid bass phrases are also on the menu, making for a seemingly alien-ish number.

“Ocelot” is up next. With a heightening feel to it, it is through a fast-skipping drum sequence, rich in percussive elements, that the up & down melodies wander. As its name depicts, this one is elegant and fast just like its feline inspiration.

“Signs From Space” wraps up the release. A breeze like intro, soft as ever, drives through a marching kick pattern and crunchy snare. Drifting through the atmosphere, the number carries on, diving into a melody performed through a gorgeous mixture of an acid bassline and flawless flute-play.
The EP is now available on the label’s Bandcamp page and after going through the whole EP, it would only be wise to add it to your selection.
