Edu Imbernon, the Valencian artist, makes his return to Bedrock with his 3-track ‘Starbuster EP’. Edu popular within the field of driving melodic, emotive, energetic electronic music. As a multi-tasking DJ, producer, remixer, label boss and event promoter, his reputation stands as testament to an artist possibly at the top of his game.
Title track, ‘Starbuster’, blends hypnotic melodious layers over an incessant linear groove with flourishes. The swirling arrangement drops to a breakdown mid-way before soaring once more. The contrasting staccato groove of ‘Concorde’ is decent, topped with looped melodies and another structured breakdown as the track flies along. ‘Flightmode’ is the finale - from its muted intro to its unfurling rhythmic and melodic elements it grows steadily.
Edu Imbernon has carved out his style and sound by focusing on song-craft that is all his own, writing and producing with live instruments alongside electronics and synthesised sounds. Alongside this, his global touring schedule: over 30 countries across five continents, with sets at festivals such as Sonar, Tomorrowland and Coachella), clubs and held Space Ibiza residencies before its closure. In addition, his Fayer and Eklektisch labels and his Fayer event series are apparently known for their style and vision.
It’s out now on Bedrock.
