Boomkat Product Review:
Lisbon’s Niagara revive their Ascender label with a wheezing, woozy session of salty Atlantic house music following their Ímpar 12” for Príncipe earlier in 2015.
Technically the label’s 2nd release after 2014’s 506 CDr, the Ascender EP breezes four cuts of bittersweet electronics yoked to fudgy, misshapen house grooves, zig-zagging from the heady wow-and-flutter of See with its fizzing kaotic harmonies, thru the chromatic disco psychedelia of Beto to the splashing, curdled jackers trip Hexe and free-blowing oscillators of Ara.
Very fair to say this 12” sounds like nowt else we’ve heard this year.
