Talamanca – Infinity EP
Nils Huzen, also known as Talamanca, has spent the year releasing beautiful productions such as his remix of Vitodito‘s Libres, the Syntheticsax-esque Remember Me, and a remix of Free Spirit by Jay FM. He hasn’t slowed down and has released a new EP entitled Infinity under the Elliptical Sun Melodies imprint. The EP features three progressive house tracks which are named Oasis, Infinity and White Sands.
The first track in the EP is Oasis, which is a Big Room-influenced track that features multiple breakdowns, lots of energy and a melody that seems to be drowned out by the track’s overly loud kicks. Honestly, I’m not a fan of this song, although I have warmed up to it after listening to it a couple of times to write this review. I’d say this is one of those, ”play in your car loud & banging” type of songs.
The second track, Infinity, is a nice change from the Big Room sounding Oasis. It is the more classic, melodic Progressive House sound that I have come to love. In this track, Talamanca goes back to his roots and puts more emphasis on the melodies within the track. Infinity also has plenty of energy as well, however this energy isn’t solely provided by the kicks, as the melody does a great job of getting you up and running.
And the final track of the EP is White Sands, which is by far my favourite track in the release. It’s a very calm song and features a beautiful melody, slightly melancholic and perhaps even a little sad. Just sit back, relax, light a cigarette perhaps and listen to this beauty. I find it hard to find words to describe how beautiful this song is but I’ll just say that this is one of my favourite songs of 2013.
