This new release features two high-octane original tracks which blend explosive percussion with gripping synth lines to create techno that’s perfect for the dance floor.
“Machine Driven” is the EP’s title track and it opens the release with a rumbling bassline and slamming kick drum that underpins synths chords laced with euphoria. Dramatic sounds burst forth to create dark tension and the compelling vocal sample adds to the unfolding suspense.
“Hold On” feat. Turquoise Music switches up the style of the release with the soulful vocal tones by Turquoise Music and piano chords layered with slamming percussion and flickers of acid. It’s a modern track that utilises old-school sounds to deliver a timeless groove with pounding percussion.
