TÂCHES showcases his new sonic vision on ‘Notes On Grains’ [EP Review]
An enigmatic TÂCHES attended his first Desert Hearts gathering this year, catalyzing a truly transformational experience for the burgeoning house producer. After 36 hours of nothing but “house, techno, & love,” he felt inspired to create music leaning toward an edgier, more desert-inspired sound which he defines as “Home is where the Heart is.” Naturally, he approached the festival’s eponymous label, coming out later with an official remix of Marbs’ “Tusks & Tales.”
The full manifestation of his new vision has now arrived in the form of his official debut on the Desert Hearts imprint for a two-piece titled Notes On Grains. The extended player commences on a subdued note, incorporating a prominent bassline into a canvas of tribal percussion and woodwind solos interspersed throughout to paint the image of a far-away desert.
TÂCHES injects even further mysticism into Notes On Grains as “Intentions” begins to play. Sparse, airy breakdowns add body to the finished product as flutters of various synths float around yet another abundance of exotic drums. By the end, fans are left even more intrigued as to what the Barcelona-based producer has up his sleeve for future releases and festival appearances.
