Happy Skull's first release of 2015 comes from UK based artist Creta Kano, who first impressed with his 2013 debut on Rotterdam's Pinkman Records. He showcases his highly melodious and deeply textured sound across three tracks for the Bristol imprint.
'Skyway Motel' is an emotive, Detroit inspired amalgamation of warm chords and rolling drum machine rhythms. The track's romantic qualities are emphasised on 'Skyway 81', a screwed, pitched-down version that re-casts the original as a serotonin fuelled slow jam. 'False Water' completes the package. A sprawling trip in to broken techno territory, reminiscent of 90's era Rephlex.
