This entire album is off the chain. Seriously. French future bass pioneers Phazz and Everydayz really killed it on this one.
For those of you who aren't familiar with the geography of Europe, Almeria is a city in Spain that sits right on the coast of the Mediterranean. Although many elements of this collection mirror some of its small town by-the-sea vibes, it's not about Almeria the place: according to an interview Phazz did with Thump, it's the name of the "inaccessible girl of your dreams" – the main character of this ten track (seven if you exclude the interludes) journey.
The album as a whole is incredibly cohesive, though still manages to keep a diversity factor in play, pulling from deep house, future bass, and funk sounds alike. It is highly recommended that you listen to this thing all the way through, but if you don't have the time (at least right now), the title track, "Girl of My Dream," and "Trappe D'Amour" are the absolute essentials. Unfortunately, the label wasn't about a Soundcloud stream, so check out the full collection on Spotify below!
