The first review for ‘Space’ came in just in time for release. A really great review from our friends at Sonaris: http://www.sonarismusic.com/sonaris-music-review-space-fetal-pulse-aka-pedro-costa/
…”Overall I found the album an enjoyable, and relaxing, listening experience. Whether for music licensing, ambiance aficionados or the casual listener, everyone can find something to like about this charming indie release. While admittedly a bit raw in parts, the album – much like space itself – attempts to capture every piece and facet of sound and combine them into an auditory journey while making no excuses, which is does well. I suggest you check out this eclectic and original album, and see for yourself. In the meantime, I’ll be kicking back with Habitable World on repeat.” …more
Fetal Pulse was recently reviewed David Holmes at Imaginary Sound Space.
“Fetal Pulse is the name of an experimental electronic music project by Canadian musician Pedro Costa. ‘Aurora’ was the first video for Fetal Pulse’s debut album Cityscapes, a 10 track album released on the 8th March 2011.
Cityscapes is an instrumental album with a lot of charm and character, mainly down-tempo, part ambient, mostly melodic, the tracks sit perfectly side by side to create a beautifully balanced whole. Pedro puts his musicality to good use conjuring up themes and dynamic changes that always flow and sustain interest. The sounds are colourful and the cleverly designed musical arrangements offer the right sonic combinations at the right times. This is an album that always feels comfortable and welcoming, like a familiar friend whose company you appreciate, time and again. “

Debut album from Pedro
Acosta Costa a.k.a Fetal Pulse is titled Cityscapes. The music is Downtempo, Dub and Trip Hop in the style of Sounds From The Ground. It is a slick, urban sound that’s got a good, deep beat behind it. This combination creates a dark, sleek sound that brings forth visions of the city at night. Commuters hustling home after a long day, white tiled caverns with subway trains streaking by. Restaurants preparing for a busy night of hungry customers fueling up for a long night at the club. An excellent debut that brings the heartbeat of the city to life.
