Barcelona’s Pau Roca is back with his 2nd release on LA label Pleasure of Love, EP of cool-hazy balearic house with equal parts sunrise and sunset energy. Roca is a standout in the Barcelona DJ scene, with his party Libido and labels Escola and Bons Records, he’s established himself as a premiere record collector/DJ and a producer in the scene.
You can hear it in 'Euphoria' a track that shows Roca’s deep understanding/appreciation of this music’s roots while updating the sound and capturing the mood and essence of the title.
'Marble Arch' is another chugging, deep italo/spanish house number- filtering in breakbeats, choir patches, and a resonant lead to hypnotizing effect. The legend Pal Joey brings a trademark sound to his version of 'Euphoria' on the flip, lending vocals and organ to a tripped out and blissful vision of the track.
Hope” rounds out the EP, a downtempo, uplifting piece for lovers of atmospheric retro-house.
