Urulu – The Armadillo [AMADEUS]

phonica premiere urulu the armadillo amadeus recordsCalifornian producer Urulu’s latest offering on his Amadeus imprint is a warm, modern-day take on the early sounds of eighties electro.

Taylor Freels, otherwise known as Urulu, is a California-native with a wild passion for sound explorations. With the eighteenth release of his own label, Amadeus, it’s now his turn to get back to business with this stunning four track release. 

Our pick for the premiere, The Armadillo, is the title track from the self-titled EP. It’s a shimmering journey that sums up Taylor’s previous experiences, both as a drum-machine addict and early electro lover. The track’s core is made up of all matter of robotic blips and bloops and distant, choppy vocal snippets, which sit comfortably over the broken-beat kick patterns and lengthy, hypnotising Yamaha synths. A driven wave of modernism runs through Urulu’s productions and The Armadillo is a fine example of his modern approach to club music, with an eye towards the past. Check it out below!
