Tibi Dabo, a Barcelona native who has become one of Crosstown Rebels’ important musicians in recent years, returns to the label this February with his latest EP, the four-track Isla.
Tibi Dabo (AKA Max Guardans) has solidified his spot among the Crosstown family with noteworthy EPs including Disbelieve and The Distance We Share, the latter of which features two David Morales remixes.
As the title track begins, Tibi Dabo sets the stage brilliantly, luring the listener in with subtle pads before introducing waves of harmonizing components and carefully placed percussions.
Mothball then emphasizes the artist’s attention to detail by developing its primary melody and vocal skills in lockstep throughout the song. Tibi Dabo’s conceptual island receives a figurative signal of dusk in the form of Brain The Cut. Arp 8 closes up the album with warm melodies atop a modest breakbeat in an extraordinarily expressive manner.
