Recommended music: 'A Soundless Echo' by Sau Poler

From Badalona, on the outskirts of Barcelona, Sau Poler started making music a year ago, and has now released his debut EP via Atomnation. Influenced by electronic artists from various genres (but, as you'll hear in the music, particularly Four Tet) he has created a positive, upbeat sound, with snatched and sampled vocals complimenting the keyboards and percussion.

You can feel the warm, almost Balearic atmosphere on the record - 'Isolated' and 'Rutes' both have that looped Four Tet percussive feel, while 'Reflections' also adds a bit of a Caribou vibe and could have been played at Cafe del Mar any time in the past 25 years. Elsewhere there are hints of John Talabot and Orbital, and the whole EP hangs together really well.

It's another great release from the Dutch label, and this time it's available as a 'name your price' download - you can listen, buy and download it below.
