UMEK’s label 1605 is proud to present a new EP from talented Italian artist Mattia Saviolo who has already featured on other trendsetting labels such as Pleasurekraft’s Kraftek and Christian Smith’s Tronic.
Mattia Saviolo is someone who shares little personal info online and instead likes to let his music do the talking, as nothing in techno speaks louder than an exceptional track played at full volume, just as his two originals on this Until The End Part 1 EP do.
1605 has focused heavily on the music of its label owner, but it’s equally focused on giving exposure to new artists destined for big things as UMEK understands it’s becoming harder and harder for talent not to get drowned out by the white-noise of things like social media.
Track one “Lifelink” opens the EP with the thundering kick drum now synonymous with 1605. Slowly building with atmospheric suspense its gliding synths contrast nicely with the grinding bass stabs and bursts of explosive percussion. Very much a hard techno soundscape, this cinematic track is perfect for blissed out moments on the dance floor.
“Dispel” is the second track and it’s a darker affair with fast-flowing synth rhythms and a pulsating bassline that combines nicely with the epic pads that add an emotive element. Leading towards the arpeggiated breakdown section, the second half lifts the intensity up a gear to deliver a track perfectly made for peak time DJ sets.
