01. Harvey McKay – Goodbye (Original Mix)
02. Harvey McKay – The End (Original Mix)
Soma welcome back Glasgow based producer Harvey McKay for his first solo EP of the year, ”Goodbye”. Harvey has had a great start to the year hitting number 1 in the Beatport techno charts with a storming release on Cocoon plus various other releases adding to his already stellar discography. Harvey returns to his home label with two typically heavy tracks both fuelled with his fast paced yet grooving production style.
Title track ”Goodbye” opens the EP and in true Harvey style. This track was truly designed for the dance floor however a deep pad and pitched down vocal gives this track more depth than expected. Harvey’s percussion is typically skippy and gives the track great momentum. After an epic breakdown the track kicks back in with drums crashing and with Harvey’s perfect arrangement, you can’t help but flow with the track.
”The End’‘ is Harvey unleashing the beast within. What seems to be something more reserved quickly becomes a monster as filtered hi hats slowly work their way in, purging any idea of this track being anything less than full on techno. With only a brief rest bite in the middle when the track opens up with a suitably deep stab, ‘‘The End” powers through with ferocious intensity.
Harvey is on the up and up and with more planned for release on Soma in the coming months, there is definitely no stopping this on form producer.
