LOW STOCK LEVEL
Buenos Aires techno duo Carisma (Carolina Stegmayer and Ismael Pinkler) follow Directamente (COMEME 025EP, 2014) with their second EP. "Fruta," the EP's most joyful track, incorporates field recordings of tropical mosquitoes and a washing machine's drainage pipe, all put to a bassline. "Discoteca Profunda" is for heavy listening, with electricity, flashes, velocity, and contrast, powerful in the hands of the DJ who dares to drop it. "Conversación Nocturna" is a cinematic interlude before "Vertigo," a prime-time outdoor abstract funk jam. The psychedelic dancefloor narrative of "Dueños de Este Instante" moves through rays of light, velocity, strobes, lasers, and high voltage.
