& Gonzo-Gonzo join forces for Cacao's second release, a power-tech EP under the Cacao Trio moniker. The mystic title From La Ceiba To Leon points to a real-life cross continent journey that was quintessential for the artists' inspiration, leading to the creation of this EP which perfectly embodies the auditive ethos of the off with a laid back melody with tribal accents, the eponymous track makes for a driving tech house hybrid channeling on chopped up vocals and spacious synth waves. Tears & Rum dives into deep techno realm with a menacing synth line, complemented by thumping percussive stabs, dark vocals and eerie sound bites. On the flip, the Tears & Rum Warehouse mix extends the cavernous atmosphere with moody subs and metallic riffs. Prolific German producer and man of many projects Tigerskin transforms From La Ceiba To Leon into a dreamy tech house exploration. Anchoring on the exotic percussion, the rework presents itself as the most mellow of the entire bunch while still retaining dancefloor zing.
