Argia / Stay The Night
Argia is the new project of Helena Piti, a Spanish DJ and producer who has crossed over from a classic musical education to producing emotive electronic compositions. Having released on the likes of Stil Vor Talent, Mooseekaa and Poesie Musik, Helena delivers a new three-track EP for hafendisko.
The Stay The Night EP was conceived and recorded at the end of 2018, during an intense creative period for the artist. Fully inhabiting her sound, the tracks concern themselves with the themes of balance and inner peace.
‘It’s Right To Cry’ is a deep, emotional slice of electronic dance music, wiry arpeggios wind their way around the thick, infectious beat.
The title track ‘Stay The Night’ is a shade tougher, with a dramatic chord progressions and evocative field recordings punctuating the driving rhythm.
The third track ‘Unreleased Thought’, makes up the trio - urgent percussive grooves lay the foundation for beautiful melodic flourishes courtesy of Argia’s well used Korg Monologue.
