We think this rst release ts the bill perfectly so come and join us on our latest adventure through the wonderful world of music.
Luna Roja delivers a wonderfully atmospheric vibe throughout while keeping its groove rmly rooted in the Techno arena. Nice chunky kicks are joined by a playful bassline that dances through the track effortlessly as swirling pads provide that almost ethereal atmosphere alongside a mesmerizing reverbed soft synth stab. Cool vocal shots are scattered all over and add character to the sound as the deep groove takes hold. This one goes deep and will de nitely keep those late night sets in full on mode.
Soul Girl intros with a stunning powerful kick drum that pounds out a solid 4 x 4 beat as bright crispy hats fade in along- side punchy snappy snares and eerie ghostlike vocal shots. A deep throbbing bass joins in and we nd ourselves locked on to the solid Techno fuelled groove. Heavy hitting synth stabs come in and ramps up the Techno groove that just oozes out of this one. One to watch here, big and bold, the bassbins are gonna love it.
Viral rounds up this superb label debut and brings home the Techno sound in style. Right from the get go you will be forced as the solid beats take hold. A tight drum arrangement made up of punchy kicks and crispy hats deliver a ow- ing rhythmic vibe alongside an energetic stuttering synth that lls out the background. The bass sits off the kick drums beautifully and melts into the arrangement while the layers build. A frenzy of percussions bring an organized noise that is complimented by some cool synths and pads. Top notch stuff that you will not want to miss.
