MBR428 | 2021-04-16  
We’re excited to have Golden Hour back after his debut, Estela, this time to arouse the essence of ‘Malevo’. Named after the ephemeral occurrence between day and night, the Argentinian-born DJ/Producer captures Malevo through a subtle straw-tinted filter, and the results here are, ironically, sublime. Malevo is at the dark tragic side of love, and in MBR428, he gleams in sinister glory.
Up first, the high-powered South Italian duo, Underspreche renders their iambic nocturnal reinterpretation. Invigorated by Marika’s harrowing vocals, sang at the cusp of lust, gripe and fury, this remix is sensuous. It is poetry strutting at afterdark, slowly burning on an esoteric groove, thrusted against tantric soundscapes colored with electro-mysticism, carnal resonance and percussive seduction.
Golden Hour’s original mix is verseless but eloquent in its acoustic rhetoric. Buoyantly meandering the horizon beneath and above daylight, this 7:10 minute track exposes Malevo’s libido and frailty, rhythmically tugging between his warring conscience and instinct. Melancholic riffs and climactic percussion are fed into the corruption of cimmerian synths. But it's Golden Hour, the timbre here is rosier, and palliative drumming keeps Malevo afloat through his sonic redemption.
