Barrientos "Los Suenos"
The flutter of tropical birds which opens this track serves as a fitting intro for "Los Suenos," a tune from rising Glasgow producer Barrientos' recent Feel the Waves EP for hometown label Glasgow Underground. Built around a distinctly tropical groove—and chocked full of spoken Spanish samples—the tune rides atop waves of cool, tranquil synths with a careful array of looping melodies and airy, side-chained pads. It all results in a track that is both peaceful and calming, but also entirely appropriate for some dancefloor shine. The Scotish upstart's Feel the Waves EP is out in 12" format now.
