Earthly Measures’ second vinyl release of the year sees them team up with the talented & mystical producer & multi-instrumentalist Sidirum – bringing you Balearic & Downtempo flavours from Argentina – sounds that haven’t always been associated with his style. An EP that fills you with euphoria & nostalgia, trying to find those sounds that can take you to another time just by listening to them – as he puts it, “rhythms from the past”.
For Sidirum this release is about the beauty of chance. Samples that he has found from near & far over many years of producing finally find a home. ‘Donde’ in particular is a special track, he says “it is the track where I found my voice again. I have not used it in a song for almost 10 years.” ‘Ex-Plane’ is heavily influenced by his love for Reggae, which runs throughout the whole track. ‘Total Interior’ is a perfect dance-floor ready track – with the help of multi-instrumentalist Pedro Alvide, the track builds a musical progression that dives into perfect sunset vibes with uplifting energy – ready for a peak time festival set.
After a number of other releases, ‘Iris’ is an EP where Sidirum feels that he has finally found himself again musically. In a way it’s a summary of the places he’s been in the past, intertwined with his ideas in the present, making for a truly unique & pleasant listening experience.
