Luis Armando returns to Release Musiq for the Futuro EP, a finely crafted set of bouncing world music-flavored tech-house tracks tailor-made for serious nightclub escapades. Armando’s previous output for Release Musiq and Electrik Soul Recordings cemented his trademark style of tough, house music beats over rolling bass lines, accented with latin-inspired percussion flourishes that hint at the producer’s Cuban heritage. These four cuts build and expand on this recipe, yielding some solid, peak time after hours heat. One will find “Futuro” with its exotic, otherworldly feel; the crowd-pleasing jackin’ stomp of “Dia de Los Novios;” the almost mythic, hypnotic vibe of “La Puerta;” and “Child of Us” with its dense, reverb layered melodies and atmospherics. It’s another choice EP from Luis Armando and Release Musiq, and one that will certainly find a home in DJ sets for years to come.
