In days where freedom around formats in which music is delivered seems to be reaching absolut liberty, Modismo gives us a brief yet overwhelming release by René Roco. With less than 18 minutes in length, we find sounds that manage to immerse us completely in a work of perfect balances. Captivating in its more danceable and pop side, this EP finds a point of equilibrium between melody and beat in ‘DIT’, the shortest of its tracks. In an interesting contrast, ‘TOC’ extends from a more enigmatic side. Curious sounds give the idea of a search that breaks the mold without neglecting the good pulse. Warm Pads are confronted to high frequencies that activate and stimulate our receptors to switch them on and prepare them for a short flight yet rotund. Martial percussive games and ludic keys provide a counterpoint that prepares us for a sudden fall, hanging on notes that fade to silence. In view of this, René Roco offers us a production that invites to start it all over again.
