Review: Alisu is the electronic project of Chilean producer and graphic designer Jessica Campos de la Paz. Alisu started her career in 1998 by performing live sets of dub, techno, IDM and experimental sounds, not only as Alisu but also in the project Manziping with Rodrigo Rivera and Antonio Diaz, performing at many South American festivals. On her first release for Bottom Forty, Alisu composes three beautiful, purely hardware based tracks for the Rompiente EP with rhythmic vibes that take you from resonant underwater depths up into reflective cosmic atmospheres.
The opening track "Cyberspace" shows Alisu's synth prowess with a driving and building yet ambient electric world that eventually dissolves into different sparkling arpeggiations, while "Rompiente's" fractured vision of a perfect aural reality spreads across a beautiful seven minutes of hyper active arp's and bass rhythms. "Wake Up" has been a club and festival favorite as it's dance floor driving kicks create a solid groove mixed with transcendent pads and spaced out sounds are the perfect formula for keeping a dance floor moving while also elevating the listener to a higher level of emotion. Rounding out the Rompiente EP is a percussive rhythmic remix from one of our all time favorites In Flagranti who give us the deep and disco influenced bass lines we know and love.
