Track of the Day: Kalyma – Again
Today we have one from Spanish-raised DJ, producer, and label co-founder Kalyma. A few months ago Kalyma released ‘Again EP’ on Solide, an independent label that he runs alongside fellow producer MYNY. The EP features 2 original tracks and a dub version of the title track. The EP’s A-side, ‘Again’, is an exciting deep house track that features a mesmerizing staccato melody and haunting vocals from Kalyma’s roommate Peter Stanowsky. I first came across the title track on Bebetta’s contribution to the LAMP weekly mix series back in August and haven’t been able to put it down quite yet. My favorite part is the breakdown as it jumps back into the verse. I love the way those soft symbols lead back into the melody as the kick drops back in. Beautiful track!
