Algerian DJ and producer Belmesk Hamza aka Balearia debuts on Bonzai Elemental with the surreal two tracker entitled Antiquity EP. Growing up in a musical family has directed Belmesk toward his chosen career. He loves woodwinds, mostly Flutes and the Duduk which offers great melodic atmospheres, also the guitar and flamenco vibes, he uses traditional methods such as the lick in order to give variations on notes. He has seen releases on labels like Abora Recordings, Trance Temple Records and Cinesphere Records. Much more to come from this rising talent and now signed with Bonzai we can expect to see some great tracks come our way.
First up we are drawn by the dark atmospheric tones of Antiquity as a cacophony of woodwinds expel sublime melodic phrases that captivate the mind. Deep basses rise from the depths and give way to the dark scapes. Super cool downtempo beats keep the heads bobbing as ethnically charged vocals lift the hairs on your neck and send a tingle down your spine. Wonderful stuff that will allow you to chill the night away.
Rub al-Khali intros with a sinister sounding melody full of melancholy. Fading pads bring a surreal vibe as fantastic vocals aim to inspire. Chilled out beats offer a smooth backdrop to the intensity of the melodies that continue to build throughout. A stunning slice of chill that will turn heads no doubt.
