Now based in Norway, the South American DJ has spent well over a decade honing his craft both on the dance floor, organizing his own club nights and in the studio, producing records for the likes of Antarctic, Primitive State, and Diligentia. After the release of his first full-length album on Faarikaal Records earlier this year, CementO now delivers an EP on Bergen-based imprint Ploink.

"Fjordens Vei" provides noisy ambiances underpinned by a pulsating low-end and a series of arpeggiated synthesizers that evolve with the tracks sharp percussion before "Trolls Reise" grips us with enticing chord progressions, gloomy atmospheres, and crisp drum fills floating above a powerful and grooved bass line.

"Forekomsten" hits hard with a heavyweight kick, rolling hi-hats, and thick dissonant drones whilst haunting motifs develop with dubbed-out effects. Remixed by enigmatic producer Twinspeaker, the Speaker Extended Mix of "Trolls Reise" demonstrates an intricate structure of intertwining melodies with acidic overtones to close out the release.
