Venezuela’s Confidential Recipe returns to Rekids Special Project with a strong seven-track Techno EP.
Carlos Siu has been making jacked-up beats for over a decade, combining rave, techno, electro and breaks to perfection under his Confidential Recipe alias. To date, all six of his EPs on Rekids’ techno-focussed Rekids Special Projects offer a subtle evolution of the last and are always at the cutting edge of potent dance floor rhythms. On his latest offering, ‘Rave Generator EP’, Confidential Recipe offers up his most accomplished works, featuring collaborations with Dagga and ELO.
The searing title cut ‘Rave Generator’ opens up with edgy stabs and fiery vocal cries before the powerful low-end kicks in. ‘U Can’t Hide’, a collab with Dagga, is full of raw texture and propulsive kicks. ‘TUUL2’ is a more stripped-back rhythm with ice-cold drums and hits rocking back and forth beneath a hypnotising spoken word vocal.
After the wild, cosmic synth lines and slamming drum sounds of ‘Minimalz’ come the freaky and unsettling synth sequences of ‘LAB01’, locking the listener in a state of paranoia and high-speed machine funk. Elo then joins Confidential Recipe for the unhinged synth madness and stomping techno of ‘Everyday’ before ‘Once Again’ locks you into a crisp and snappy techno groove with wonky leads and chopped vocal stabs.
“For me, this is a record especially aimed to turn any dance floor on fire, inspired by early rave sounds with Chicago and Detroit underground textures and my personal touch, it is also very special for me as it is my longest EP with seven dance missiles I’ve been testing on clubs since a long time, so I’m happy to see them come to light!” – Confidential Recipe.
