São Paulo’s Érica Alves has her head in the clouds but her feet firmly planted in the dirt. Her earthy voice exists in direct contrast to her instrumentals, which are ethereal yet grounded by stumbling drum machines and bubbling organic keys, all recorded through layers of cassette grit. (She’s a fan of both industrial innovators This Heat and dreamy French synth poppers Air.) It’s at once soothing and a little dark, like you’re listening in on demos recorded in her bedroom. In addition to her entrancing work on record, Alves has lately been exploring dancier territory, with a new live act that sees her typical beats incorporating more house and techno structures. The Brazilian producer builds layer on layer of rhythmic electronics until they threaten to collapse over you.
