His last production titled ‘Falling’ shows a great contemporary techno style, which melts a warehouse oriented drum loop and a mental synth/vocal approach to the sounds.

Combining a base of thumping kick drums and rippling bass tones with ravey acid techno elements from the outset, its vast atmospheric soundscapes and crisp hat grooves add an underground feel. The track is brought together by an undeniably catchy centrepiece, building around one of the most iconic vocal samples of the early rave era.

Label boss Luca Maniaci is an established artist who lists labels such as Josh Wink’s Ovum and Florian Meindl’s FLASH Recordings in his back catalogue.

“Unsolved Case” is a raw jam with thundering toms and haunting atmospherics ready to take on the dance floor.

Luca Maniaci switches up the opener with a more driving take and expands the mood with added bleeping tones.

“Unchanged Behavior” uses modular notes to form the hook over some jackin’ percussion bursting with energy.

Fourth on offer is “Unrevealed Secret” with a bouncing beat and rattling drums working with some tasteful sci-fi twinkles.

Closing with “Until Tomorrow” and its brooding aesthetic, the clean, hypnotic feel and mind-bending hook are outstanding.
