Porto-based label Kokölò returns with its fourth release: Alfonsvs’ ‘Maybe Memories Are Our Only Relief’ EP.
In his latest EP, Alfonsvs is inspired by that feeling of melancholy that comes from remembering happy memories, knowing that we can never feel the same again. With this in mind, Alfonsvs presents a trio of techno tracks specially designed for the dance floor and the current festival season, and the emotions they generate.
This work is also a testimony to the consolidation of a career, full of certainties, but also hesitation. The result is a work of contrasts, a twilight piece, of slow combustion, capable of calmly suspending us in the void, based on subtle, soft and vaporous melodies. The album draws us in in a sweet and bubbly way, managing to link the most complex structure with the most Dionysian energy, thus allowing the listener to enjoy and taste in equal parts. Something very rare in many artists. We can only advise that you stop everything you are doing and immerse yourself in this sound.
The idea that drives this album refers us to one of the crucial attributes of music, and that is its inexhaustible capacity to generate moods that protect us at all times. Its meaning is in the hands of electronic music lovers, beyond the dance floor and all hedonism.
