The tasteful deep house label welcomes a new producer to its ranks.
Specializing in affable, dusty Rhodes house, Huerta has built a tidy discography over the last half-decade. He's recently revamped his sound to better fit into the long-form parties of his adopted home of Berlin. On his new EP, there's a clear affinity with S. Moreira's productions. Huerta's are lush and atmospheric broken-beat tracks not far from Kyle Hall's recent records, though his predilection towards the Hoppetosse/Club Der Visionaere scene means there are less notes and boogie influences in his basslines.
"Metafiction," the collaboration with Moreira, opens the record for a reason. It doesn't sound like anything either producer has made in the past. Constructed around a pensive pad, an octave-jumping triplet and a rumbling rapid-fire bass line, it's a hair-raising rave track that still fits perfectly within Slow Life's tasteful, pared-down style.
