Boomkat Product Review:
After leaving us hanging since his acclaimed ‘Dulce Compañia’ LP, Brian Piñyero’s DJ Python makes a welcome return with six tracks of heat-hazy, dembow-driven ambient house for Dekmantel.
Leading on from that cracking album for Anthony Naples Proibito label, the ‘Derretirse’ EP locates an even lusher-minded Python snaking thru slower and more spacious productions, sounding like he’s taking OG Balearic vibes back to the source.
On the A-side that results the the BoC-like shimmers and infectious rub ’n tug of ‘Lampara’ sequenced next to the hip-swaying breeze of ’Tímbrame’, and the subbass-loaded grip of ‘Cuando’ in a style firmly recalling The Orb and SAW 85-92. The B-side follows on that vibe with the EP’s sublime highlight of weightless drums and ‘floor-cradling ambient strokes ‘Espero’, and ‘Be Si To’ crisply defines his dembow house stride at a balmy 110bpm beside the bleary-eyed and screwed rave suss of ‘PQ CQ.’
