Vlad Caia – Both Sides Of The Story - UVAR
Vlad Caia has real cult status as an underground mainstay. He operates in a world where minimal, tech house and ambient sound designs all happily merge into one fresh new sound. He manages to make skeletal tracks that are sparse and delicate, yet also hugely compelling and impactful on the dance floor. This new one for UVAR is another car in point. It opens with 'Seeker,' which is all hurried drum loops and leggy bass, then 'Dicton' casts off on a slippery groove to the farthest regions of space. 'Rubicon' is the astral party amongst the stars you might find once you reach your destination - all percolating pads and sc-fi designs that melt the mind.
