For this release the mysterious Masaya, whom some will remember from her 2006's epic ‘Long Distance’ collaboration with Ripperton on Num, brings more dark Perspectiv goodness. The vibe is detached and melancholy with a little touch of trance, which is to be expected on a label run by Ripperton. And quality is also to be expected from Perspectiv: the sounds are simply deeper and richer than most of the competition, with icey melodies poured over cavernous drums.
‘El Choquero’ is backed by three in-house remixes, two from Agnès and one from the lesser known half of the label's management team, Sam K. K's rework is not radical, stretching ‘El Choquero’ out into a more frenetic loop, but keeping a lot of the flavour of the original. Agnès, one of the most prolific producers in the minimal scene lately, opts for a rough and funky interpretation with his ‘Deepshow Mix’, which is the rawest and most uptempo cut on this EP.
Yet his ‘Dub Mix’ is even better, a tight loop with an array of sounds crammed in, from chirping synths to dark, dramatic strings. It's a really swinging re-work which provides a great alternative to Masaya's more pensive original, and completes another excellent Perspectiv release.
