Spain’s Cuartero delivers a pair of tracks on Lee Foss’ Repopulate Mars label, featuring separate remixes from French producers POPOF and Julien Jewell. Hailing from Malaga, Cuartero’s possibly risen to become one of today’s most in demand producers with a back catalogue spanning the likes of Desolat, Hot Creations, Moon Harbour and Knee Deep In Sound.
Meanwhile, as a DJ, he has trotted the globe including appearances in Los Angeles, Berlin, London, Moscow, Ibiza and Antwerp.
Touching down on Repopulate Mars for its tenth release, Cuartero kick-starts proceedings with an energetic acid cut, which should do well. ‘Cheer Up’ then combines a muscular low-end with snares as glimmering atmospherics ebb in and out of the mix.
Hot Creations and Cocoon’s POPOF is the first to remix ‘Up To The Roof’, reimagining the track as a rhythmic roller with intricate percussion and stuttering vocal samples. Tying it all together, recent Drumcode signee Julien Jewell pairs thudding kick drums with suspenseful build-ups for the finale.
It’s out now.
