Hot on the heels of his new EP for Rosso Corsa, Portuguese Dreamwave SaiR is already filling up our ears with more of his smooth, Jazzy, retro Nu-Disco sounds. This new one, Mornings, is a musical treat that’s primed to ease you into the week.
Mornings a blissfully laid back, Moog Funk infused, Disco tune layered with so many melodies it should sound really cluttered, but in SaiR’s capable hands everything flows together perfectly. Running throughout is a lush electric piano that lends a cool Jazz swing as it breezes along a dense, Funky backing. just the right tempo to keep the energy up, but also wash you in relaxed vibes. SaiR delivers mood changes with skill too, as the just-under six minute track injects the occasional Cosmic build and growling Electro Boogie breakdown Perfect introspective Disco listening.

SaiR’s Sunfield EP is out now on Rosso Corsa Records.
Well, this is a nice surprise for the end of the week. One of our favourite SynthWave artists, Portuguese producer Ruben Allen, A.K.A. SaiR, has just released a shiny new EP on none other than Rosso Corsa Records. It’s been a while since we heard from SaiR, but it looks like his time hasn’t been going to waste.
The Sunfield EP holds four tracks from SaiR output in the last couple of years, each one loaded with a sweet nostalgic synth Funk. Kicking off with Clockwise, rocking an Electro-Funk bassline and a punchy buzzing lead. Clockwise twists it’s way through Disco, SynthWave and Funk, revelling in the best of each with some glorious synth sounds and melodic playing. Shoreline conjures a mood of lazy afternoons in the sun with it’s laid back vintage synth style and some dreamy melodies. Sunfield delivers an even more chilled groove that sees SaiR getting a little synth Jazzy while Bright merges the best LA Funk with, and Herbie Hancock style keyboard wizardry, with blissful Dreamwave. If you’re a fan if Disco, Funk or SynthWave this EP is a must. Also, the guy on the cover (pictured above) is Ruben’s old-man, in the 70s, dirt-biking it!

SaiR’s Sunfield EP is out now on Rosso Corsa Records.
It feels like ages since we heard anything from one of our favourite producers, Portugal’s SaiR, so it’s a good job he made his latest tune, ‘Bright’ an absolutely massive slab of synthesizer Funk.
Clocking in a six minutes, ‘Bright’ is a bit on an odyssey. An audio journey though blissed our Disco moods. SaiR really bring his A-game here in teams of musicality, the arrangement is intricately crafted here with various bass and lead lines weaving in and out of one another as SaiR channels a hint of Herbie Hancock and Moog Funk together with his own Dreamwave tinged Nu-Disco sound. Pure good-time summer vibes here, so grab your boom-box and take this track to the beach, if the weather is fine, if it’s not then just whack it on some headphones, close your eyes and be transported to somewhere sweeter.
SaiR and Show Your Shoe, two names that are constantly on our playlists, together at last.
Show Your Shoe’s reMix of ‘Clockwise’ sees Nico braking out the big synth bass and slick Disco riffs for a track with is equal parts pumping and epic. Taken to rhythmic new places by some sweet string hits, this new reMix kinda’ carries you along in it’s journey through the landscape of Funk.
Our favourite Portuguese producer SaiR has taken on the lead track from Cavaliers Of Fun recent ‘Sharing Space Secrets’ EP, ‘Passengers’, for his latest mix.
Keeping it smooth with a night time vibe, SaiR works Ricco’s vocals into a laid back slice of synthesizer Funk featuring the very best in head nodding basslines and quirky little lead riffs. Ruben from SaiR certainly knows how to twist a synth line to his funky will and makes the track so slick and chilled that you can just let is wash over you like a wave of groove.
Our boy SaiR has unleashed another massive slice of electronic Disco on the world, prepare for summery good times regardless of the weather.
‘Sunfield’ is the perfect end-to-the-summer track (although it suddenly got really hot again here in the UK so this tune is going down right nice!) with big grooving analog basses and intricate synth leads dominating the proceedings. SaiR gets his Jazz-Funk musicality going here and adds a touch of freestyle to this laid back Nu-Disco monster.
Here’s the brand new track from Portuguese producer SaiR.
‘Shoreline’ does exactly what it say on the tin, it’s an Electro-Funk fuelled Dreamwave sonic painting conjuring images of chilled summer days at the shore and waves crashing against the beach. SaiR, A.K.A. Ruben Allen, has such a good grasp on synthesizer funk, both his basslines and his leads are pretty much perfect. This track is probably going to define my weekend!
Like Dreamwave? You will probably love this track!
Portugal’s SaiR (A.K.A. Ruben Allen) is proving himself to be an upcoming producer to keep an eye on. With his new track, ‘Clockwise’ is displays an awesome talent for creating synth sounds, I literally adore every patch used in this track, and SaiR rides those sounds with ease. From the Electro-Funk bassline to the sweeping retro chords and the Funk lead that runs throughout Ruben handles intricate and intertwining melodies like a master.
Keeping a strong 80’s vibe with the leads and a driving rhythm section ‘Clockwise’ is Dreamwave with a solid groove. Fans of the Valerie crew’s output wanting to put some Funk in their lives should defiantly check out SaiR.
