Opening up the EP is label boss Rudosa, and his tune ‘Dominance’ which has already gained huge support from Amelie Lens, Charlotte De Witte, Richie Hawtin, and ANNA. It comes after a string of Beatport chart toppers on labels like Suara, Noir and We Are The Brave and is another standout offering. It is a real acid monster, with hammering techno drums and warped synths barrelling along at an enthralling pace.
Frenchman Blicz has had props from Amelie Lens, who included one of his tunes on her fabric mix, and with ‘Gate 212’ he lays down more of that perfectly dark, driving, no frills and uncompromising techno. ‘When Angels Cry’ keeps the pressure on with more streamlined acid techno grooves that are embellished with icy hi hats and rumbling bass. It comes from the Dutch outfit Hush & Sleep whose dark melodies have taken them all over the world in the last 12 months. Next, Italian pair Reform have impressed on outlets such as Etruria beat, Second State and Quartz Rec and get hands in the air with their trance land ‘Holy Graal.’
Last of all, Gijensu’s ‘Inferno Onleyene’ is white knuckle techno with searing synth lines and hard hitting drums that take you into the next dimension.
This is edgy melodic techno with real future energy and makes a huge impact, emotionally and physically.
