Marc Hernandez - The Maturity (Karmaloft Music)

The Karmaloft Music imprint so often hones in on blissful, melodic house productions made for island settings, specifically of the well-documented Balearic vibe. Young Barcelonian producer Marc Hernandez's new four track EP for the label is no exception. The Maturity sees no sense of immediacy as it unfolds beside energized percussion elements. The melodies clearly come from a place of calm, a well of deep emotions pumped up and served within danceable compositions by Hernandez. He's had previous releases on the likes of Ninerecords, Zion Recordings, and Freshportmusic, but if this is to be deemed his coming of age, then it's a bright one with lush strings and bell-like synth tones providing much of the instrumentation. It's 'all aboard' for this first class flight through the sonic airways of the melodious, deep house-dominated islands off the coast of Spain.
