Be Svendsen – Getula [EP Review]
Be Svendsen ended his year on a sensual note via “Getula.” Through jazzy keyboard riffs, Eastern-inspired instrumentation, and carnal rhythms embedded in a mid-tempo foundation, the Danish producer proves once more that electronica doesn’t need to be pounding and high-charged to create an irresistibly move-able atmosphere. Its hypnotizing layers serve as tentacles that keep the listener hooked until the very last beat.
“Getula” also received remixing treatment from rising Italian/Canadian duo KMLN, who created a more atmosopheric feel with their added synth work and balaeric guitar samples. Yet, their version is also heavier than the original, as KMLN chose to anchor the finished product with pronounced bass-lines and slightly tougher kicks.
Given “Getula’s” mystical nature, it was only natural that the piece be signed onto Sabo’s Sol Selectas label. Both Be Svendsen and KMLN are known collaborators with the Sol Selectas brand, and their work certainly embodies the imprint’s ethos.
