“Spanish producer José Barrera (aka Bite) delivers Calle Palma, basic_sounds closing netlabel release. Known for his dark immersive ambient drones Bite delivers a more tranquil, sombre, piano-driven ambient release with hints of nostalgia.
‘1977’ opens this full length album with a sentimental piano composition alluding to feelings of sadness. ‘Odisea’ is a soft ambient track with crackling nature sounds and distant reverberations, giving illusions to floating though space and time. ‘Ensueño’ is a dark gloomy ambient piece incorporating piano and alien-like distant twirling winds. The titled track, ‘Calle Palma’ is a soft tranquil piece with delicate piano melodies, distant bird sounds and soaring ambient waves. ‘Flor de un dia’ is another subtle piano composition that offers a sense of calmness and peace. ‘Agujero negro’ starts off with helicopter sounding winds merged with soft distant shakers, slowly introducing dark ambient intrusions. ‘Espectro visible’ is a spectacularly beautiful piano interlude with light ambience to coast you through. ‘Claroscuro’ is a light uplifting piece designed to arouse your emotions. ‘Fuga’ closes the release with calming piano sentiments. This is one of those albums that touches everyone who’s listened to it – immersive, uplifting, evocative of a variety of things that you can’t quite pinpoint.”
