Aster - Cielo (Bicep rmxs)

Following their 2012 “Danza” EP, barcelonian duo Aster return to Hivern with “Cielo”, probably their most accomplished track to date. Builded around crystalline piano chords, soaring choral pads and laid-back rhythms, the title track captures the kind of melancholic euphoria reminiscent of the rave era from a slo-mo house perspective. A vocal snip taken from from British rave culture documentary “High On Hope” closes the connection circle with the rave days, both sonically and emotionally. Belfast-born, London-based stellar duo Bicep proves they remain on the top of their game delivering not one, but two flawless remixes. Their first reconstruction, which occupies the whole A-Side, is a house stomper guided by a extra-rubbery bass-line and elegiac vocal samples that transforms the track into a dance floor-ready artefact without losing it's celestial nature. The second remix is a more classic affair, diving into swinging rhythms, M1 strings and a bouncy bass to get that mid-90s Jersey House vibe that the duo keeps nailing. As the first Aster EP, the release comes wrapped in the second serial sleeve conceived by Alex Trochut and designed by catalan artist Montse Buxó.
