Aiby - Can't Make You Happy

One half of the brilliant Aiby & The Noise, Vanessa Rodriguez is a producer, DJ and DIY vocalist from Barcelona, Spain. Over the last year or so she’s been mostly locked in the studio getting to grips with an increasingly large array of analogue synths. Her hard work is now bearing sweet fruit, in the form of a very special pair of productions for Colour and Pitch.

Blueprints from the early Detroit techno of Juan Atkins and Metroplex run through both cuts; technology lovingly imbued with soul and emotion. The title track ‘Can’t Make You Happy’ can only be described as a deeply personal, visceral and understated piece of electronic music, with warped, dreamy chord-scapes tugging at the heartstrings behind a tragic vocal refrain. ‘Guess Who’s Back’ moves seamlessly onto the dance-floor, bridging the gaps between House, Techno and Electro music (and having a lot of fun in the process). We’re immensely proud to be entrusted with these two spectacular tracks; we hope you love them as much as we do!

Early support from Parris Mitchell, Demarkus Lewis, Soul Minority & Jazzy M.
