Carta & Gian Varela – Alarma


• Tribal and Psy-Trance influences
• Generic and overused structure
• Catchy drop (but is there an equal teamwork?)


Taking a quick look into the rather unpredictable schedule of Revealed Recordings, this particular work made me surprised because of the parties involved in making it. First we have Carta, an esteemed figure on the genre and then there’s the Panamanian act Gian Varela, whose original roots lie at Latin music before making transition towards the mainstage EDM scene.

As we dive into the résumé of these personages, the Chinese DJ/Producer has crafted a ton of tracks sharing similarities with today’s highlight. On the other hand, Gian’s input in this synergy doesn’t seem as convincing, or perhaps his latest collaboration with DISTO was a first step in a different direction.
