Hailing from Rotterdam, one of the undisputed Techno capitals of the Netherlands, Benny Rodrigues has been closely connected to the CLR crew for many years. With numerous appearances at Chris Liebing’s party seasons on Ibiza, his restless dj-ing, several high quality releases on renowned labels and his regular appearances on the CLR podcast, he has gathered many loyal followers in the international Techno community. Under his real name Benny Rodrigues he is partly known for his remarkable versatility and sometimes quite House oriented sets. ROD is his alter-ego, which clearly labels his pure, straight to the point Techno productions and performances. And this is what you can expect from this release – high quality, no-nonsense Techno with loads of bass.
The EP features two brand-new ROD tracks, entitled HGB and DTC. HGB is stripped down, energetic and hypnotic Techno with a thrifty and efficient use of synths. Its driving, elegant beat programming, together with its crafty, subtle effects, vividly illustrate the special handwriting of ROD. DTC is even more minimalistic and reduced to the absolute indispensable, which makes it equally effective in its own way. With those productions ROD is really on to something, and we are very happy to present you his first and surely not last CLR release.
