One of Spain’s most enticing exports, Cuartero has been gunning for the upper echelons of the underground through a staggering list of strengths on imprints from the likes of Get Physical, Desolat, VIVa MUSIC, Knee Deep in Sound and more. Evidently, the techno and house-hoisting sensation is on the right track as his global-reaching tunes continue to spill out the sets of the scene’s most trusted tastemakers. For his latest outing, the Spaniard scores four floor-flavored tunes on the esteemed Hot Creations imprint in the shape of his Dioneli EP.
The title cut leads out the pack in full force with its vigorously driving vibe. Cuartero cuts no corners with this beast, employing relentless hats and domineering drum work to his advantage. If the percs don’t take you where you’ve always wanted to go, just wait till those synth lines show up to the party. On a side note: Cuartero has earned our complete trust with this huge thumper.
