stylistberlin review: Hermanez “Sugar Rush EP” (MFFM007) – Out: 2015-07-06

4 Comments 09 June 2015

 “My Favourite Freaks Music” has probably one of the best teams and some real gems by new artists (remember Macromism?). Well, a new EP arrived in my mailbox, and I wanted to share: hermanez – Some Sugar EP

Who is Hermanez?
“Some things are just meant to happen. To see Hermanez, the Belgium-born DJ and producer with Latin roots and heritage, rise to the top of the new crop, seems like a natural progression for those in the know. Hermanez is perhaps mostly associated with his grooving, and tribal-flecked tech-house productions, which keeps finding favours with the great and good including Luciano, Loco Dice and Reboot to name a few. However, a closer look at the Belgium-born producer’s back catalogue unveils an all-encompassing production saviness confidently moving through the different realem of techno.

With releases on aforementioned labels, he adds to his discography Trapez LTD, Viva Music, Leena Music, Noir and Suara, with a much-talked about releases on New York based label Serkal Music and Inmotion Music, not to mention releaes on his own Aella Music imprint which he runs together with long-time friend and fellow Belgian Ramon Tapia. Gigwise, apart from his monthly residency at the concept Unicode in his native Belgium, Hermanez has been zigzagging the planet delivering a perfect fusion of house and techno, incorporating minimal undercurrents and rhythmic building blocks, to clued-up revelers at off-Sonar in Barcelona, Fuse Brussels, Spartacus in Aix en Provence, Footwork in Toronto, Tanzhaus West in Frankfurt, Module in Tokyo, Club Air, ADE Festival in Amsterdam and Tomorrowland (Belgium) at the Cafe d’Anvers stage.

Yet it is clear that Hermanez is on the rise, gaining momentum with every single one of his multi-facetted releases. Join Hermanez’ great artistic journey into the future – and become a part of it!

LABELS:
AELLA MUSIC / INMOTIOIN / TRAPEZ LTD / SUARA / VIVA MUSIC / LEENA MUSIC / NOIR / SERKAL MUSIC”

“My Favourite Freaks Music welcomes back HERMANEZ!  His EP “Some Sugar” features four Hermanez like groovy tech house club killer tracks, which will rock any dance floor.
Acid sounds, real instruments, nature and tech house? Yes, this is working like magic! The second track of the EP, “SUGAR RUSH“ which comes with a very striking and a rather startling break down and explodes into an incredible ending.
Samba, summer, sun & beach parties – this is “SANDALS“. Percussions, beats and sounds of the title let me think about a trip to Latin America with a never ending burning groove. You just simply can’t stop shaking your hips!
Hermanez’ third track “SOME THINGS“ comes in the shape of Deep and hypnotic male vocal phrases and a monstrous filtered lead synth set up. Tech house par excellence with big beats.
You need freaky sounds? Here we go: “GOLANA“ has everything you need for a techy or tech house set. This song is drilling into your head with minimalistic but big bass and FX sounds. You may not be able to get it out of your head.”
Opinion: For a producer who has such a good reputation, I find this release weaker than previous ones. Nevertheless, “Sandals” will work very well this summer, the other tracks “Sugar Rush” and “Some Things” as well as “Golana” are a bit stronger and darker, so I would prefer to play them at peak-time right before ending a set.
