♫♪  Mateis e. aqir - “Tejita”

The sultry, smooth and, dare I say, silky grooves contained within Mateis e. aqir’s latest, “Tejita,” are matching my mood on a toasty, sleep-deprived Sunday. Heady zones not necessarily aimed at the dance floor, this latest spool of sounds from 100% Silk is a slow burn, relaxed set perfect for its height of summer release, whether that’s chilling in the shade with a book and your beverage of choice or hanging out poolside in the cabana, also with your beverage of choice ;)

Mateis, Russian born but Barcelona based, has amassed a crackling discography across several labels, from Jungle Gym and All My Thoughts, to name a few. Chrome Upon Guayota is their first for Silk, and hits the right notes across each of its six dense, rhythmic shufflers. Stream “Tejita” below, and catch the rest of the tape when it drops July 19 (pre-order HERE).
