Leonardo’s Etheric label builds on the first three releases with a fourth two-tracker of his own. An artist who is more interested in feelings than musical trends, he delivers his own sound fuelled by drawn out grooves. Now, ahead of his debut concept album ‘Message From Wudang’ which is due next year, we have this latest offering.
This double A-side release showcases two very different moods from Leonardo. First up is the tough, futuristic and ethnic ‘500 Years From Now’ which shows the artist’s peak time and tech leaning side. With its bass groove, automated arps and electronic rhythms, the track rolls out through a natural organic sequence that’s always developing and evolving with strong spiritual undertones and sci-fi elements.
On the flip is ‘Evolution Of Heart’, a liberating, deep and melodic house groove that aims to bring goose bumps with its pads and textures, arps and stripped back percussion.
This release is a continuation of the style and approach that apparently saw his last single gain significant global support, and this may do the same all over again.
The EP's out today.
