Bodycode

The Conservation of Electric Charge

Lisbon, Portugal-based Alan Abrahams has earned a lot of attention lately. His releases as Portable (~scape) have garnered near-universal acclaim for their deft fusion of tribal rhythms and a modern micro-house sensibility. For his first album as Bodycode, he focuses on the more dancefloor-oriented aspects of his style, yielding a gorgeous album born from the belief that the psyche can be unlocked via the body.

Bodycode also came from necessity—while on tour playing club dates, Abrahams was compelled to seek the most engaging sound for that environment. Remarkably adept at its task, Bodycode’s mesmerizing percussive arrangements and subtle melodic flourishes create an immediately engaging sound that lingers in the mind long after the club has closed
