Enigmatic Portuguese electronic music producer Filipe, under the name of 1906, makes his official debut in the electronic music world. His first EP, titled Lisbon, is a sonic journey split in four parts. It's a conceptual EP, heavily influenced by the atmosphere and history of the Portuguese capital, something you can only experience and fully understand by visiting the city. The vibe is captured, not only with nostalgic melodies that rediscover glories from the past, but also with modern and aggressive sounds evocative of the city's nightlife.
This project which is influenced by Justice and other artists belonging to the "French Touch" movement, is a collection of songs, not tracks.It breaks away from the chains of commercial electronic dance music and chooses to discard the classic build up, smooth fx transitions and easily mixable intros and outros. It's unpredictable and exciting, throwing heavy electro, dark funk, trash electro, and even soundtrack flavours into the mix when you least expect it. But above all else, it is extremely rewarding when it needs to be and holds back at the right time, leaving the listener numb only to surprise him with a refined mixture of analog sounding basses and cutting edge digital synths. A special bonus remix by Mac Stanton completes the massive project.
To celebrate the 4,000 followers on their soundcloud, So French Records team decided to launch that new release and give it exclusively to EARMILK.
