The "Culture EP" of Hermanez is a cool blend of perfectly exercised passages with a nice stop and go feeling and a tasteful selection of sounds and it also has a couple of melodies that you would not expect from Hermanez.
The EP starts with the energetic track "Myth". The track comes with a hell of lot of drive that commits itself to cosmic sounding delays of sounds that unfold like an acoustic balloon within the track as well as serving as a template for a spectacular break in the last 3rd of the track!
"Rha" has a perfect flow that gives room to feelings, expends them nicely so they linger on in your mind for a bit longer. The melodic peak at halftime coins a new Hermanez who shows fine lyrical qualities along side his Chicago roots.
"Blue Field" is a bit of a funky baseline monster. No stunts and not eventful per definition but a perfectly grinding piece of trax-music that is so important for the DJ who loves to mix and needs transitional tracks that can hold up the tension!
