OPEL MANTRA PT.3/3 by AWANTO 3
Talk about saving the best until last. If you thought that the first two parts of Awanto 3ï¿½s Opel Mantra trilogy were good, just wait until you hear Part 3. It delivers a brilliantly breathless conclusion to what could well be one of the strongest debut albums of 2014.By now, you should know the script. Amsterdam producer Steven van Hulle has previously shown glimpses of his musical talents, either with sporadic solo productions (see his superb 2010 debut on Rush Hour, For Five), or alongside friends from the Dutch scene (San Proper, Young Marco and Tom Trago, in particular). Opel Mantra, a debut album split across three 12ï¿½ singles (a CD version will follow later in the year), is his big reveal ï¿½ our first chance to wallow in his unique and thrilling fusions of deep house, Detroit techno and a multitude of vivid global influences.
