After a fantastic solo single in late 2018, Theus Mago is back with more club heat, this time in collaboration with the Local Suicide duo on his own co-run Duro label.
Theus Mago is the alter-ego of established Mexican producer Mateo González. Responsible for projects such as Bufi (Kitsuné/Discotexas) and Sonido Fantasma (Turbo Recordings) he has a deeply expressive, freeform sound that mixes darker moods with lighter synths.
The lead single’s title is roughly translated from German to English as ‘Come Into The Hole’. This double entendre can be taken as the never-ending vortex of deep space, as well as the dark recesses of underground clubs.
The first remix comes from Aera, who has recently released his own album ‘The Sound Path’ on Permanent Vacation. With a heavy hand on the filter, Aera removes most of the sparkling highs of the track in favour of its more foreboding frequencies.
His remix was one of the highlights at the Innervisions Off Sonar Open Air event, during Áme’s b2b set with Dixon and at Tomorrowland during Solomun’s set.
This is another excellent release from this young but essential and rapidly growing label.
“Komm Ins Loch” is available 18 January on Duro, PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE
