/ Toucan & Beep Dee-Strano Camera EP


From their homebase Brazil, the new combo TOUCAN, consisting of Bernardo Campos and Olliver Mach, send us some fine tunes over to set us into the right mood just in time for the spring. The two are each quite famous in the scene of Rio - together they combine their strenghts to unleash their debut "STRANO CAMERA EP" with some amazing deep house vibes on AKBAL MUSIC. Like a toucan the three-track EP spreads out its wings and takes us with it on its flight. The tracks are all starting off with a pleasantly laid-back beat. These floating beats form the background for the tracks. With a lot of attention to the little things, TOUCAN adds more and more samples and high synthie sounds together to generate some amazing tracks. Thus is the EP well-balanced between relaxing and thrilling beats, without ever getting boring or too agitated. The last piece, which bears the same name as the EP "STRANO CAMERA", reflects the peak of the unstressed mood of the whole EP. Lively samples and some 90s synthie tunes are forming the well-fitting contrast to the slow deep background accords. In the end TOUCAN leaves us with the feeling of a warm evening while hanging out in the streets of Rio. And we are ready for the spring!
