Santiago Salazar: Member of Underground Resistance, producer of Los Hermanos, recording artist for Planet E. A biography made in heaven. “Arcade” immediately shows why Santiago is known to be one of Detroit’s most forward thinking producers and DJs. The chords, the hook, the synths, the drums. Finally an anthem that’s 0% retro and 100% euphoria. Leaving the recent fashions behind, “Arcade” spreads all the warmth and enthusiasm one could dream of this year. And if this wasn’t enough: Stefan Goldmann provides his first remix for Macro. His version is a 15 minute monster. Not just a jam, but a fully composed journey from deep reverberation to drum machine fueled peaks to a japanese flute and koto workout. Around 7 minutes into the thing, the roles of track and sample are reversed: the beat is pushed to the back and the flute/koto action takes full control. A classic way to finish a set now.
