A new talent adding his name to the Stil vor Talent history book and one bound to conquer even vaster crowds and territories in the coming months, Spanish up-and-comer Gespona lands his debut EP for us, "Kune". Comprising four expressions of his straight out addictive floor blends, hybridising the throbbing heat of bass-charged earworms and rhythms, Gespona delivers a strikingly mature maiden effort that makes the rounds betwixt epic-sized momentums and jam-packed club intimacy.
Lighting up the path, the exhilarating "Akiris" (feat. NonReal) sets the tone with a magmatic fusion of rugged EBM jack, stealth subterranean vibes and callously sensual arpeggios on a mission, primed for whipping up a frenzy across all of the club's rooms. The further syncopated "Okazi" (feat. Amadori) deftly shifts through hi-intensity martial marching, back again in the now to better feel the fast-transporting nature of Gespona's sound.
Title-track "Kune" goes for a more furtive approach, starting off like this season's umpteenth sub-bassy tech-house pumper, then rapidly morphing into an iron-and-steel body-jacker a la Woolford. All in distortions and FX-loaded wizardry, this is music to basically lose your sh*t to. Positively so. A team effort with Agustin Giri, "Rektaj" rounds off the parade with power and rage, deploying its menacing wings like a bloodthirsty vigilante in search for its next criminal prey. The result is a synth-splashed, hard-hitting churner designed to pace the streets of Gotham at fierce, breakneck rate.
