MBR377 | 2020-04-03  
Emerging from arcadia in a time when reality needs it most, MoBlack Records' 377th release summons Fortaleza-based, house music veteran, Carlos Francisco to render a stunning ballad nurtured by grief and nourished with love. Nestled in an ambrosial concursion of multi-dimensional percussion, Iorona builds up into a stark chorus rippled by an elusive melody, mellowed by tender piano notes but ultimately bound by the humanity of skin-on-skin, grounded in the simple rhythm of the basic hand clap.

Francisco garners the poignant perspective of a fellow South American in side B. Argentinian rising star and melodic house marvel, Santiago Garcia takes Iorona to a spright start, a brusquer, fiery bassline that initially takes her mourning off the spotlight only to divest to transcendence at climax, infusing sounds that feel like nature and smell like lore. Garcia's reinterpretation is a melodic surrender to mystery, an acceptance of the unknown, a dance for letting go and the time for letting be: Time to End.
