The best part about visiting Barcelona for Primavera Sound last year was entering the fantastic and magical world of Delorean. What we had thought was primarily a remix project turned out to be an enthralling and adventurous full-on band. We were surprised by what a massive and rabid Spanish fan base they had from two previous full-lengths while retaining a relatively low profile in the rest of the world. As it happens, Delorean are at the forefront of a burgeoning community of musicians, producers and dj’s who are mining the collective Spanish dance-music heritage of Balearic house and combining it with contemporary independent pop, European techno, shades of the ecstatic Madchester sound and hip hop – a perfect soundtrack to romantic nights along the white Mediterranean sands of Barcelona. Last summer’s Ayrton Senna EP soundtracked our lives upon return to the states. Ayrton Senna and their two full-length albums however, only hint at the journey that is Delorean’s infectious and innovative synthesis of dance musics and sounds.
It’s with all this in mind that we are so proud to announce the release of Delorean’s latest album Subiza available April 20th (digital) and June 8th (physical) on True Panther Sounds, available in Spain/Portugal/Mexico on the excellent Mushroom Pillow. Named after the bucolic Basque town in which the album was recorded, Subiza is the realization of a longtime ambition and marks a clear evolution for the band. The dance-club rhythms and airy melodies they’ve toyed with in the past are fused and textured, making for a deeply obsessive, hypnotic album that retains the easy appeal of great pop music. Looking at 30+ years of club music history with fresh eyes, Delorean have made an album that is dense and soulful. Our first listen to Subiza was exhilarating, every subsequent listen is a revelation.
