Portuguese outfit Elberec celebrate their first year of releasing music with an 18-track compilation marking their fifth release, comprised of tracks from little-known artists from the country.
Sprawling over just about every dancefloor-oriented genre under the sun, from highly-strung techno for dark rooms to blistering electro and beyond, the compilation aims to support and strike light on producers that haven’t seen as much exposure as they perhaps deserve.
Inês Duarte and Mauno Koivisto’s track ‘Rua Da Alegria‘ shows the lighter side to the compilation with a cheerful beat descended from house. Sun-licked without overstepping into contrived territory, the meandering track sits just right at this time of year: featuring plenty of bubbly energy and glinting vocals, this one is just the pick-up you needed.
‘Elberec005’ is scheduled for release 18 December via Elberec. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
