Aylu is an Argentinean producer, founder of the ABYSS label; she is also one of the leading promoters of Chicago footwork in the South America.
groove 4 Aylu is two nine-minute footwork suites transcending its Chicago origin. 4.1 and 4.2 are made up of everyday life sounds, simple instruments sounds creating an exotic mosaic of details. One can find elements of samba and carnival, jungle, jazz phrases, playing children or ping-pong game. Aylu creates images full of surprising combinations, witty humour and phantasmagoria. This is musique concrète de realismo mágico.
groove 4 is the first in the series of three cassettes dedicated to female producers.
Aylu is near and dear to my heart. This album is no different. Walden has been one of my favorite releases of 2018. I always seem to find myself putting it on in my car and in the shower. It won't get out of my head and I'm ok with that. mise en drèam
