Number 060 in the PoleGroup catalogue is tight and sharp, and it’s no surprise to see that Oscar Mulero is the mind behind this creature, offering three cuts of merciless techno exercises both physically and digitally.
The opening track is “Tormenta” translating to Storm in Spanish, a fast-paced groove with almost all elements up from the very beginning. Wisely distorted drums, continuous filtered sequences, a sharp elastic line running and mutating across the structure. Direct and mental at the same time.
“Espectro Rojo” translates to Red Spectrum and begins with obsessive distorted evolving lines, shuffled hi-hats and precise kicks. The stereo field is constantly worked out augmenting the experience exponentially.
Listen to the exclusive premiere of Oscar Mulero “Espectro Rojo” on PoleGroup:
“Gradiente de Voltaje” closes the EP, the overall feel is less distorted and more opaque and lo-fi. The liquid filtered bassline is soon joined by distorted hats, alternating patterns and twisting the sounds wisely. No sudden interruptions, no abrupt changes, just the right dose of hypnosis to use as a powerful tool.
