I have a very pleasant surprise for all of you. One of my old school buddies, Sal Mercatante, who I haven’t seen in years (we both played saxophone until we quit because we hated our teacher) recently came out with his own artist album! Currently residing in Queens, New York, Sal started his beatmaking career in 2005. Using Ableton with his Nord Lead 2, which by the way is a kick ass piece of hardware, Sal has developed an incredibly unique soundÂ that is not to be missed. With this said, I present to you the Arcem – Over Bridge EP! It was released today, April 20, and had already reached #32 on the iTunes Electronic Chart by early afternoon. The EP beautifully explores the IDM/Experimental/Ambient genres of Electronica. Posted below are my favorite 2 tracks from the EP, ‘The Spice Is Right’ and ‘There Was No Gravity Back Then’. I’m really digging the album and if you’re ready for a change of pace and pure originality, then check this out now! I am also calling it now that the song ‘There Was No Gravity Back Then’ will be used in a movie soon. You read it first here, Sal. Be sure to check out Arcem’s Twitter and Soundcloud too! Do yourself a favor and go purchase this album now!!
