Carlo - 99 Crondall Court EP

Having previously had stuff out on labels like Redlight and Composite, Carlo comes to Irish label Elevation with this three-tracker.

The EP starts with Iceland, a slightly off-kilter slice of downtempo electronica that could just about be called slo-mo house, I guess. The pace then picks up on Ladybug, which is a deep n’ moody house/techno affair tailormade for post-club comedown sessions, before the EP comes to a close with my fave of the three, Once Upon A Flat (very droll), which is a more straight-up late-night deep house affair.

Be warned though, the hype sheet does mention ‘soundscapes’, which is seldom a good thing in my books! This isn’t as epic and self-indulgent as that word usually implies, but if it’s bouce-around-the-room tackle you’re after, this isn’t the place to look.

Out: This week

About: As stated, this is on Ireland’s Elevation, who’ve been on quite the roll of late. Find ‘em online here.

Oh yeah, and Carlo’s fans to date apparently include the likes of Steve Bug, Luciano, Loco Dice, Damian Lazarus and Josh Wink, which kind of gives you an idea what to expect as well.
