This is the debut full-length release by Spain's Pulshar -- a band formed by Pablo Bolivar, renowned electronic composer with an extensive discography, and Aphro Sainz, graphic designer, "loop digger" and ex-vocalist of the dub and reggae bands Better Collie and Loud and Lone. Hypnotic and deep soundscapes, a bass line full of soul and sensuality, contemporary ambient-dub -- highly-addictive music from the very first listen. Pulshar are influenced by hip-hop and blues, dub reggae and psychedelic rock, demonstrating exquisite taste playing with loops and samplers, and great skill in creating distinctive, catchy, melodic rhythms. The music and voice of Pulshar is unique. Layers of evolving sounds and rich ancestral textures take us on a journey where space and time become intertwined and confused. Brotherhood is a collection of 10 outstanding tracks that combine deep soul and old classy dub with some space-tech elements. Influenced by the sounds of artists like Scientist, Paul St. Hilaire, Lee Perry, Al Green, Rhythm & Sound, etc. Pulshar is modern dub with a hidden touch of Detroit-tech and a nod towards Basic Channel, Studio One, Maurizio, Burial Mix and Chain Reaction, as well as being clearly connected to the actual dubstep scene, led by geniuses like Burial and Kode9. This is rich, electronic music soundtracking a journey through time and space, where we find a parallel between the origin of the earth and an unpredictable future. Pulshar builds a bridge between these two opposites; as reflected in the artwork, taking us to the past to develop a futuristic sound.
