Track of the Day: Pablo Bolivar – Back Door

This morning Pablo Bolivar released his ‘Back Door EP’ on the legendary Hanover-based label Peppermint Jams Records. The new EP is a big one for Bolivar. It features a couple of remixes from Ian Pooley. That alone is notable. But the new EP’s title track is something else. ‘Back Door’ is deep house down to its core. That pervasive synth chord that holds over the duration of the track sets the vibe and maintains it for seven full minutes. But my favorite part is that stuttering symbol in the background. The effect is subtle but it fosters a dizzying hypnosis that all comes to a head with the vocal samples at the breakdowns. This is a perfect track for playing in a lounge or during a warm up set. Love it!

Pablo Bolivar is a Spanish DJ, producer, and label founder currently based out of Barcelona. Bolivar’s career in music began when he studied Sound Engineering in Barcelona. After working as an engineer for a few years Bolivar released his first album ‘Anjanas’ for a Barcelona-based label called Regular. Since then Bolivar has become something of a giant in the underground dance music scene. With releases on Moodmusic, KNM, and Desloat as well as collaborations with producers like youANDme, John Tejada, and Mario Basanov, Bolivar has been making waves for years. His label, Seven Villas Music, is a staple of the Spanish house music scene while AvantRoots, a label that Bolivar co-founded, has dropped tracks for artists like Soulphiction and Dave DK.
