Moon Harbour’s carefully curated Orbiter series is back for a standout seventh edition with contributions from contemporary talents Andre Salmon & Francis Davila, Weird, Sunday Noise and Disaia. The four tunes cover a broad array of house sounds in a stylish fashion.
Live artist, sound engineer and all-round production wizard Andre Salmon and major label dance music titan Francis Davila kick-off and are a pair who have worked together on banging tracks before now on labels like Rawthentic. Their ‘Mistico’ is five pumping minutes of steamy and tribal tech house with rave-y synth stabs and an edgy peak-time vibe. Next up is Weird who brings the sort of stripped-back but slinky tech house that locks in the crowd. His taught synth lines and unrelenting bass are pure party.
Young Peruvian artist Rodrigo Carranza is Sunday Noise and someone who has already got the attention of names like Marco Carola and Michael Bibi. He continues his fine run of form with ‘Pam Pam Pam’ which is a vibrant and richly layered track full of restless energy, carnival drums and Spanish vocal loops that bring the heat. It’s a full fat and heavy house sound that is followed by Disaia, the Spanish duo making waves on the likes of Sola and Hot Creations and who also drooped ‘Fuego’ on this label last year. They bring the fun with big steel drums and rolling snares on ‘Africanism’ which teases and pleases with clipped melodies and non-stop drum funk.
Orbiter VII is another collection of red-hot club grooves designed for maximum impact.
