Technicolour Sattva - Technicolour Sattva EP

Too cosmic and far out to be straight chillwave, too beat-based to be straight drone/Berlin School. What is it? The man behind Technicolour Sattva, Carlos Gatel, calls it "retrowave". Going from Oneohtrix-style crystal New Age zones to sweaty, Madlib-worship funkadelia in just two minutes? No problem for Gatel. Technicolour Sattva EP is more a series of multi-styled collages than actual songs. And it's a good thing - an abundance of hard-to-pigeonhole music lately is astounding.
