[PREMIERE] Skygaze – Night Heat

Yes people! Here is another exclusive Selectors premiere! this time featuring a track from Skygaze’s new EP “Astral Trip” which is dropping on Flumo Recordings tomorrow!

Architect by day and musician by night, Jaime Tellado picks up as Skygaze, and returns to the
Flumo Recordings fold with his brand new 12″, the ‘Astral Trip’ EP; combining his knowledge of
architecture with a love of sound to construct and merge acid house, broken beat and
atmospheric melodicism.

The ‘Astral Trip’ EP follows releases on Guayaba records, Riverette and Thirty Three Circular.
And remixes for Ed is Dead and Contours & Yadava, earning support/plaudits from the likes of
Mr. Scruff, Simbad, k15, Andrew Jervis, Gilles Peterson, amongst others.

The common denominator throughout the release is the balance and combination of various
elements, exploring a multifaceted contemporary dance sound whilst paying homage to the
foundations of the sounds that we listen to today. EP opener “Minor Mood” pays tribute to
Chicago and Detroit with its high paced house rhythm, acid synths, and piano lines, leading us
directly to “City Cathedratics” as Tellado slows the tempo down to lay the groundwork for a
dreamy synth-laden soundscape.

Whilst the majority of the project is a solo exploration in dance music and its multi-layered
context and history, the contributions of vocalist Ruben Ondina lift the high-paced, synth house
grooves of “Gimme Five” to another level. Meanwhile, the broken beat influence of London is
keenly felt on “Nigh Heat” and “Wagwan”, their rhythms emphasised further by harmonic and
melodic exploration via atmospheric synths, melodic improvisation and irresistible synth bass

Skygaze reconstructs the rhythms and synths into his own fresh and unique package to paint a
picture of spiritual wonder, richness and excitement.
