South America's finest Ricardo Tobar returns with 'La Condamine', an EP of melodic & cosmic electronic music adventures. The four tracks EP is the first release on the edgy 'MUSAR' imprint, set to release on October 20th, 2017.

As you can expect from a premium sound designer & tastemaker, Tobar's EP channels his roots from classic 80's darkwave analog sounds and the melodic, softer edges of early IDM.

'Rue Calme' is a deep and uplifting psychedelic trip that standing exactly on the borders between the dark and the light worlds of Tobar sounds, while the title track 'La Condamine' draws on influences such as Boards of Canada, Orbital and Sci-Fi movies, with an epic melody on warm northern drums-plate, perfect for sunset time.

On the remixes are Barcelona's favorite player Marc Piñol and the sound architecture Ulrich Schnauss with a colorful explosion of electronic sounds. Ulrich's remix reimagining the beats in early 90's lo-fi shoegaze version of the opening track, while Marc's remix is a floor magical journey covered by bright vocals and rich atmosphere.
