Carlos y Gaby, the latest artist featured in All-City's ongoing LA-centric 10" series, hooked us up with this cut from their contribution to the Irish label. "In the Whirl Emote" is one of the duo's three jams on LA Series #5, and flexes a particularly stripped-down style of sample-based electronic music. Field recordings of children laughing and playing outdoors are covered by ominous, transient synths and a slow-moving percussion loop, which Carlos y Gaby occasionally play in reverse. It's a mellow and even-keeled piece that only seems to reach any sort of quasi-climax around the time a brief birdsong is made loud enough to overshadow "Whirl"'s other elements, just before it disappears equally as fast.
