Review

A spiral of evolving and heady, sample-laden tracks unfurl on Paco Osuna’s latest EP, a richly produced melding of continent-spanning talent, with Paco partnering up in the studio with real-life amigos Daniel Sanchez, Alex Under, Joseph Capriati and Alexi Delano. The Amigos EP presents driven, moving grooves with satiating build ups, over densely-layered samples and drums. Osuna’s seasoned skill-sets in the DJ booth and as a producer come together knowingly in this release. Osuna and his Dutch/Spanish counterpart Daniel Sanchez combine melodic and percussive samples in Kawuriel, whilst with Madrid’s Alex Under as his cohort, Osuna transfixes with WaAaA - featuring a distinctive pitch shifting sound throughout its phasing. Your understanding of its unusual name will become abundantly clear upon the first listen. Also notable is Wope, which contains woodblock-esque percussion samples that compliment the rolling bass, co-produced with Italian musician Joseph Capriati. The EP’s finale, Waxfix, is a combination of the talents of Osuna and Sweden’s Alexi Delano, resulting in another cleverly-derived arrangement of steady bass drums and strong high hats. It’s a well-locked and smoothly syncopated, loop-based groove.
