Lost Archives - Part IV // AERA007​.​4 Befomo / Jasper Wolff & Maarten Mittendorff

by Indigo Aera



Amsterdam’s Indigo Aera label is back with part four of their Lost Archives series. The EP features two tracks, one by Befomo and one by label bosses Jasper Wolff and Maarten Mittendorff.

Befomo is a moniker used once only by Rotterdam's Benny Rodrigues, for an album of tracks that he produced some years ago called If One Day This Seems To Be The End. It was a personal project dedicated to his father, which was supposed to remain unreleased. However, following an email conversation with Derrick May, one of the tracks from the album is getting a release here. 'Hugs From The D', a broken drum based deep space funk with celestial pads circling round a jostling drum beat. It's an uplifting, intergalactic bit of music that has real soul at its core.

The flip side is 'Symmetrical', a track by Jasper Wolff & Maarten Mittendorff. This one is a seriously fast paced bit of supple and succulent techno with fantastic cymbal work, plenty of slap funk in the percussion and swathes of warming, dubbed out reverb. Once again then, two very special cuts from the Indigo Aera label.
