ANKIT UPPAL

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

Ampispazi goes inter-continental. Their ability of spotting undiscovered artists proves itself once again, and this December they bring to light India’s own Ankit Uppal’s debut release. The Mumbai-based producer (so far under many’s radars) presents himself with a 3 tracker, ‘Beauty and The Beast EP’. His sound mixes Techno with deeper melodies, in perfect line with Ampispazi’s unique sound. The EP opens with the dance-floor filler Beauty’s 6am rendition of the title track: a powerful bassline guides the cut alongside a relentless 4 to the floor groove and a truly Berlin-style synth melodic line. Following is the ‘Tale Of the Beast’ version: the track features a melancholic and psychedelic crescendo, a real treat for the late night / early morning clubbers, until it drops back in powerful manner. Hands in the air! The EP closes with ‘Few Words’, a much more experimental and Techno track: really dark percussions drive the groove, while beautifully crafted synths’ melodies come and go, surprising the listener and keeping the dancefloor dancing. Music crosses boundaries and Ampispazi knows this well.

Always with Love
