about

Musically, Ecuador producer Alvaro Espinoza has a penchant for probing the depths of some pretty dark places. The producer also known as Cutkachi attempts to merely document the feelings of fear associated with exploration of the unknown. On his debut release for Soulstep, Cutkachi does just that with this two-pack of cerebral and shadowy numbers.

Out Space, a creeping drum cadence and heavy, heavy sub-bass low end set the tone for this cold and lonely trip to the outer reaches of space. Spooky synth overlays, tonal bells, and an almost-deafening echo of the unknown rattle the psyche and set the unfortunate cosmonaut up for what's assuredly going to be a bumpy ride. Cold, dark, and slightly unsettling, Out Space reminds listeners just how deep-and dark-space really is.

Similarly, B-side Ihna is no nearer the sun than it's predecessor, the backdrop of Ihna is a massive black wall of the unknown. With little more than a short break of silence, the kick-snare of a tribal 2-step drum line emerges from the shadows, giving a sense of structure and space to the darkness of this soul-seeking trip to the spirit world.
