For the first time in its history Bogota records signs an artist from the city of its adopted name. Atlántico House Caribe drops two tracks on the Ivaylo’s Oslo-based label with remixes from Bogota satellite figures Tellstroem and Demarkus Lewis. Making his debut on the label, Atlántico House Caribe vibes with sound of Bogota, the city and the records over the two-sided single.
Giorgio by Carbone finds the producer in ecstatic rapture as a lead synth line reaches celestial heights through the steady percussive
foundation that informs this House track. Beaming with colour and rich in contrapuntal rhythms Giorgio by Carbone is fervent with a Latin swing embracing the mood and the feel of the Colombian capital as an introduction. Tellstroem smoothes out the dynamic flair, taking the track deeper into the realms of the beat, exorcising those Latin percussive parts to take centre stage, and reducing the synth line to a single repetitive bar.
On the flip, Atlántico House Caribe keeps it funky with Oyelo Mango and its bouncy bassline that evokes the early days of Daft Punk and Filter House. Samples work alongside synthesisers in an incandescent collage of colour and sound. The Colombian producer remains upbeat with that Latin flair firmly ingraining itself on the record, before Demarkus Lewis turns it down a notch in deeper that deep PM mix. Over the two tracks and its remixes it introduces the young producer as a latent talent, with Bogota records calling in a new generation of House music.
