Miguel Toro Presenta Oil Of Mars incl. killer SAMIM RMX Currently, Matthias Tanzmann is feeling really well on his scouting mission: Besides playing countless gigs, Matthias always keeps eyes and ears open for new talents. Following New Zealander Simon Flower is Miguel Toro from Venezuela: An active musician since 1988, Miguel has been playing in Fusion bands as well as solo and in cooperation with other artists. Lately, he has been on the road with Swiss high-flyer Samim a lot, enriching his sets with live percussions. Three pieces of Miguel’s new project Oil Of Mars have been selected for his first EP on Moon Harbour. “Cure” fuses minimal house with dark cinematic extracts. Remixing it, Samim and Miguel round off its edges but take it further with wild sound experiments, adding even more facets to the original. “Otro” starts with a distinctive lurching loop but develops step by step into a versatile piece of Minimal. And to finish it, “Clak” shows how House can be standing firm without becoming nostalgic in times of Minimal all around: Deep beats and a handful of striking sounds develop into a cooled-down funk that’s neither Oldschool nor current Zeitgeist. A fine debut, isn’t it?
