Fred Lenix & Dino Lenny ‘Motivator’

Artist: Fred Lenix & Dino Lenny
Title: Motivator
Label: Truesoul
Cat. #: TRUE12146
Release date: 6 May, 2022
Format: Digital

Future star Fred Lenix links with seasoned production ace Dino Lenny for a debut collaboration that signals the start of a well-matched union.

Firmly established with a stacked discography that reaches back to the ‘90s, Dino Lenny’s arsenal can be sourced across a myriad of prominent labels, making his Truesoul debut long-awaited. Fred Lenix, in turn, is still on a high after his triumphant maiden EP on Truesoul late last year, ‘Somewhere’. The future-facing release stood as a label highlight in 2021 and signalled the artist’s arrival as a promising force on Truesoul moving forward.

With Maceo Plex being an unwitting matchmaker in inviting them both onto Ellum Audio’s label sampler last year, the pair began swapping demos with frequent exchanges soon establishing that a tripped-out collaboration was on the cards.

Title track ‘Motivator’ is an evolving synth-driven dispatch loaded with a powerful, stabbing loop that blends with its robotic soundscape and creates a futuristic ambience. ‘Psycho Under Pressure’ cuts like a blistering raid through the cosmos as pulverising, climatic elements and distorted spoken word gives the duo’s laser-focused techno the space to impress.
