When listening to Sau Poler, one gets the sense of his latent talent. The Catalan producer has already impressed electronic luminaries and fellow countrymen John Talabot and Pional—both have invited him on tour—but it’s clear that he’s still ascending. With each release, Poler continues to distill his brand of disco-inflected house music. That evolution is reflected once again in his latest effort, Memorabilia.
"Memorabilia is like a link between past and present," Poler explains of his upcoming EP. "The result of this project is a transition that remains back and forth during the creation of it. Unintentionally, I've been influenced for what I've done with my old project Pablie and for the nowadays electronic incursions that Sau Poler is taking me on. I've start (sic) to experiment more and more with electronic sounds, and feeling really excited about that. It's the reason I've decide to invest on new equipment, aiming to work on longer song structures that can lay on different spots during the track length. ‘Jaffe House’, ‘Esperits’ or ‘Gone’ are a good example of that."
Today, in an exclusive premiere, EARMILK is streaming Memorabilia in full. As Poler suggests, the new EP displays his experimentation with longer song structures. Though just five tracks long, Memorabilia presses for more than thirty minutes, juggling funky instrumental fragments atop relentless house rhythms. En masse, the record feels nearly inexorable—it’s thrust forward with the kind of energy that propels Grands Prix racers, or at the very least the kind that fuels late night dance marathons on the Spanish playa.
Memorabilia arrives on April 29 via Amsterdam-based label, Atomnation.
