Boomkat Product Review:
Mexico City's Paurro debuts on Cómeme with a supple set of dancers' breakbeat house - psychedelic floor fillers that should appeal to anyone tickled by Eris Drew and Octa Octa's T4T imprint, I. Jordan, or Anthony Naples. Includes a remix from Matias Aguayo.
For the last few years, Paulina Rodriquez has been cutting her teeth as a DJ, bouncing between New York City and her hometown Mexico City to work out exactly what the sweatiest, sexiest dancefloors might require. Those efforts have culminated in "Galavisión", five lengthy breakbeat workouts that massage the outer limits of the house spectrum.
The title track offers an ideal introduction to Pau's sound, with lysergic percussion adding sparkle to a slinky rhythm that modernizes Chicago's deep, dubby template. 'Rave Soup' scrapes more influence from the soundsystem canon, building filtered hoover bass and choppy breaks into a subtly euphoric backdrop, while 'Relax the Rax' brings us into peak time with bitcrushed rolls, '90s stabs and cautiously dubby low end.
'They're Here!' is the most unexpected diversion, and Pau harnesses the latent energy of acid house and early electro, creating a mood that's only expanded on by Matias Aguayo in his pounding, warehouse-ready rework. Absolute belters, beginning to end.
