Luis Bravo returns to Monog Records with the beautifully crafted Espiral EP
Luis Bravo returns to Monog with the superb Espiral EP which features an excellent collaboration with Jose Vizcaino and a top notch remix from Pysh. It’s been a while since Luis’ last outing here, it was back in 2016 when he delivered his Bubbles EP which was very well received indeed. Since then he has continued to impress with his unique brand of quality music on various labels. Luis is joined by San Francisco based producer Jose Vizcaino on Comfort Zone where he brings his special brand of deep tech to the release. A well established artist, Jose boasts an impressive back catalogue spanning several years on top labels, a pleasure to have him at Monog.
Pysh also joins us as a debutant delivering a solid remix on Comfort Zone. Pysh is a unique artist with a passion for music. After many years as an artist he has appeared on a raft of labels and continues to develop his sound. Thanks to his understanding of sounds he can move between genres with quality always at the forefront. A formidable trio of artists on this one and together they’ve created a solid dancefloor sound.
Espiral intros with a surreal musical sequence made up of dark pads and strange, noisy FX. A punchy kick drum bursts through and is joined by a deep bubbling bassline which transforms effortlessly into a crunchy 303 style sound. Slicing hi hats cut through the dominating lower frequencies add movement and rhythm to the track. Cool synth plucks mesmerize as those dark pads return, taking us on a trippy escapade. A top notch cut for the late night sessions that is not to be missed.
Next up we have Pysh’s remix of Comfort Zone which gets going with a solid, thumping kick drum and bright crispy hi hat combi. Gritty bass synths introduce us to the darker side of the groove as hypnotic arpeggios cascade through the sound. On the low end a rumbling bass lurks waiting to pounce as the intensity rises. Subtle melodies creep into the techno groove and lock us in for the duration. Quality stuff that will not disappoint.The Original Mix of Comfort Zone rounds of this trio of quality cuts and right from the off we get a nice, flowing deep tech groove that lures us in. Tight beats offer up a solid rhythmic flow as a powerful, probing bassline controls the low end. Mesmerizing pads swirl overhead and are joined by musical percussions that add character to the sound. Mystical voices draw us deeper into the groove adding a trippy element. An absolute gem of a track and a definite must have for the peak time experience.

Monog Records is a music label based in Berlin, which aims to create a unique connection with it’s artists and their music. Each relationship we have with our artists is treasured as much as the last. We want to be there for all occasions by connecting promising and established artists, building the ground, supporting each other and sharing our love as a family alike.
Our name comes from the word “Monogamy”, the state of having only one partner at any one time. In many cases, this word is used to refer specifically to marital monogamy and this is what we are about. We define Monogamy not as a death sentence but as an idea of sharing the same path together. Monog Records seeks to refine the concept and turn it into a “Musical Monogamy”: two individuals/parties with one shared music soul.
The owl is our mascot, our guide, our loyal friend. This monogamous night hunter is a symbol of wisdom and mystic force. Since we can’t avoid how many things we have in common, it has become the symbol of our label.
Monog Records was created in 2010 by Joal and re-launched in 2017 by Bruno Otranto.
Monog does not follow any Electronic music trend. What matters to us is being able to support our artists by accepting who they are, which seeds they sowed in the past to get them where they are and that they have the opportunity to be free to express themselves through their music.
