Listen to Downliners Sekt's 'Silent Ascent' LP
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Back in 2012, when we first ran a Bubblin' Up feature on Barcelona duo Downliners Sekt, the pair was in the midst of prepping a new album. Then, in our recent profile of Barcelona's emerging talents, the outfit informed us yet again that a full-length was in the works. Now, after months of patiently waiting, Downliners Sekt's Silent Ascent is set to arrive next week, but before then, the LP is streaming in full exclusively on XLR8R.
Across its 12 tracks, Silent Ascent continually maps points of sonic convergence, melding Downliners Sekt's keen ability for crafting finite sound design and detailed textures with club-minded aesthetics and dancefloor-ready sonics. The resulting album showcases a hybrid style unique to the Barcelona pair. Before Silent Ascent sees a full release on April 7 via the InFiné label, the record can be heard in its entirety below.
