Cesar Merveille first joined the Cadenza team in 2009 with the outstanding ep ʻDescargaʼ, produced alongside fellow artist Pablo Cahn and garnering high critique from industry and public alike. A well known and much loved figure within Candenzaʼs Vagabundoʼs ensemble and equally the international club circuit, it is with great pleasure that Cadenza welcome Cesar for his debut solo release on the label.

ʻMaayancholyʼ is a beautiful and heart wrenching record, showcasing the delicate and fiercely musical palette of the French producer. Introducing with shimmering open cymbals; light and airy they rustle simultaneously and offer diversity via their multiple manipulation. Unsettled and sporadic, they splash throughout the remainder of the piece in an ethereal manner, casting light over delicate Steinway piano keys and stabbing muted chord sequences. Argentinean artist Guti composed the aforementioned piano, his jazz and pianist training clearly used to full degree on ʻMaayancholyʼ with simplistic singular key arrangements and piercing chord sequences. As the ascending chords rise, they dance magically alongside the pitter patter of percussive drums in a stripped back and raw demeanour. ʻMaayancholyʼ effortlessly lays bare the emotive side of Merveille through this ambient and surprising track.

Luciano picks up the remix duty for with a 16 minute interpretation. As condensed cymbals and piano chords are electronically warped, urgency prevails and groove sets in, securing Lucianoʼs twisted version as the perfect companion for the simplistic original. Pace quickened and intensity sharpened, Luciano demonstrates the clear dance floor attributes within ʻMaayancholyʼ in an electronic reinterpretation fit for the floor.
