Arcanoid – Migration To Nowhere (SEMANTICA Z – 2012)
Arcanoid is a trusted player in Semantica’s roster and presents an all-around first aid kit consisting of different sub-genres of the electronic music. Born as Luis Cantalapiedra Vázquez and having spun music under the name of DJ Muerto, experienced producer from Spain can look back to a few releases on Madrid label and returns in style with “Migration To Nowhere”.
The end is the beginning: ambient-minded introduction “Time To Die” is for meditative moments in Arizona wasteland, but thereafter black Dr Martens are worn in “Espora”, a mix of electro, IDM and EBM influences, which might track back to Aracanoid’s beginning at the end of 1980s.
“Force Of Gravity” continues in electro mood, but the B-side is different again. “Interzone” would be classified as tech-house and would be a good suggestion for summer parties in the sun. For the most ecstatic track of the EP synth worms are unleashed in “Zero G”, which is not far from MFS trance. All in all a release with many faces and a functional tool for DJ cases.
