On Edge Society welcomes Italian techno mainstay Markantonio and rising English talent Drumsauw as the pair deliver their three-track ‘Foundation’ EP.
Founded in 2015, Carlo Lio and Kareem Cali’s On Edge Society imprint has been a long-standing provider of impactful techno cuts from the scene’s biggest names and freshest talent, including artists such as Truncate, Regal, Marco Faraone, Marco Bailey and Avision. Up next, the US-based imprint welcomes Neapolitan techno staple Markantonio as the AnalyticTrail boss follows up releases via EI8HT, Mindshake and REDIMENSION with three gripping collaborations alongside UK talent Draumsauw (Analytic Trail/Planet Rhythm) as the pair make their label debut with their ‘Foundation’ EP.
Title track ‘Foundation’ sets the tone and launches into a loopy ride through classic techno textures reinforced by tough kicks as a fiesta of hi-hats propel the production forwards, while ‘Keep Moving’ brings a robust yet hypnotic approach as metallic drums march forth beneath the track’s evolving melodies. Closing the show, ‘Tribe’ welcomes further deeper grooves and sharp claps for another punchy yet silky workout, rounding out an impressive first appearance on On Edge Society from the two talents.
