Emmerson debuts his Hidden Memory alias with ‘Dark Rhythms’, an exploration of his Afro-Venezuelan roots.
After living in Caracas, Barcelona, and more recently Santiago de Chile, Venezuelan electronic music artist Emmerson Hernández relocated to the Netherlands just in time to unleash Hidden Memory, a new musical adventure through which he goes deep into his own roots to enhance his futuristic vision. The sounds of Africa and its diaspora, which crosses the Atlantic all the way to Venezuela, are the main ingredients of his debut EP Dark Rhythms, a club music cocktail formed by four original tracks and two remixes.
Our pick of ‘Dark Rhythms’ is the ‘Caly’ remix by the uprising chilean producer Tomás Urquieta from Infinite Machine. Tomás Urquieta is able to flip the original production completely on its head, shifting a bubbly track into the depths of a club atmosphere. Using over distorted rumblings from the beginning immediately sets the listener up for the rest of the track.
Hidden Memory ‘Dark Rhythms’ will be released digitally on October 25 2018.
