The technical mastermind of Henry Saiz exhibited itself again earlier this month in the form of a single released via his Natura Sonoris label. "Little Mountains," which has been available since October 3 as a part of the Balance 019 singles series, was released under Saiz alternate alias as Hal Incandenza.
Saiz proves again here that his skill in dominating every aspect of electronic groove-building he tries his hand at relies little on any particular BPM. The slower funk-line of "Little Mountains" is carried by the melodic pitching of vocal samples that sound as though they are echoing "Freedom!" throughout the song–inducing disco-responsive serotonin receptors in the brain to fire with each build and deconstruction. Saiz crafts every track with extreme detail and purpose, and "Little Mountains" is no different–each sound in the track compliments all the others, never cluttering the mix or feeling rushed. The light piano harmonics and disco-inspired percussion are enough to move the most stagnant of souls into a groove that is undeniably 'Saiz.' "Little Mountains" is indeed a contender for track of the year in 2011–make sure you check this one out.
