While newcomer Alan Castro hasn't quite made it through to one of the bigger labels on the minimal scene, his contributions have been keeping the underground heart ticking healthily. His EPs are oftener characterised by intricate, modular patterns that are so favoured right now among the tech heads, and this new single for Arupa Music delivers yet more quality vibes! The title tune "Crazy Comedy" barely stretches out a 4/4 groove in the face of slow, bubbling shards of melodies that lock into a funky, dustpan sort of rhythm; the reshape mix from SAM injects a bumpy, bouncy bassline to lift the tune onto the core of the dancefloor. On the flip, "Seat 8" goes all bleepy thanks to a bizarre jingle of sci-fi harmonics and all sorts of polyphonies gone utterly loopy, leaving "Valenteen" to scrap all the twisted beats up with its eerie, shape-shifting minimal ballad.
