With Mental Disorder 014, Reeko started this coloured vinyl trilogy. Acclaimed by the best techno djs of the scene, it received great feedback. And now, these are the second and third parts, where once again Juan Reeko dives deep into dark but still relaxed landscapes. Segmento 3 drops the BPMs down and opaque kicks and filtered percussions fly over the dark beats bringing on an hypnotic feeling. After the rhythm fuelled part, drones and pads take over the arrangement for the last minutes, turning dance into meditation. Segmento 4 is a long ambient exercise, relaxed, dreamy and liquid. Seven minutes of calm inundated with plenty of stereo details. The third vinyl opens with Segmento 5, beginning with an ambient mood that soon becomes a dub techno workout. Liquid pads and chords, obscure kicks, bright shakers and hats for 6 minutes of mental travel. Segmento 6 closes this double pack still in the same vein: slow but dark as in Segmento 3. The beats roll off at the end, muting into ambient soundscapes. This is a mature work that shows a new facet to this immense producer going further into deep territories and intelligent techno.
