Today I get the pleasure of covering our very own Amparo! Amparo is a producer, artist, photographer, philosopher, traveler and culture junkie – she also happens to be one of our best reviewers!
Amparo just released an EP titled Cloud Wrangler on Texas label SVNSET W?VES, and it’s a good one.
I’ve been a fan of Amparo’s productions since I stumbled upon her Soundcloud a few months back.
In Spanish, “amparo” means “shelter” – which seems very fitting given the nurturing atmospheres in Amparos productions, which are always heavy on vibe and depth.
When I listen to Amparo’s latest EP, it’s more of the same – and that’s a very good thing. Amparo consistently produces tracks with relaxing melodies, lively percussion.
Amparo loves to travel, and when I listen to Cloud Wrangler it feels like I am taking a journey along with her.
The lush atmospheres remind me of walking through a living forest, with lots of little things happening all around.
Through an excellent use of reverb and sampling, Amparo achieves a high degree of chillness in her productions.
Melodies come and go, but the theme persists through every track, each gentler than the last.
While this EP is only about 15 minutes in total length, it feels like a complete set, and one I enjoyed listening to over and over, each time finding something new to enjoy about it.
Highly recommend you check out this awesome emerging artist, if you’re in the mood for some relaxing, interesting electronic music.
