Dutch DJing and production duo Analog Effect aka Jan Boom and Branko Van Hilten team up with fellow country man Jay Junior for their full debut release on SRUR with “Diffuser EP”. Jan and Branko have done remixes for SRUR and Bonzai Basiks in the past for Oz Romita and Oliver Moldan. These guys started out creating bleeps on Atari computers and have since worked with and played with top DJ’s and artists from across the world. Jay Junior has music coursing through his veins, he started his music career as a percussionist and he has performed at many festivals across Europe. Now when Jay takes to the decks he throws out an energetic and rhythmic experience for the listener.
The title track “Diffuser” intros with a thumping kick and light percussion, the rhythm builds steadily and bursts into a full on tech stomper with a deep, reverberating bass. The break offers up some interesting FX which works very well in contrast with this deep groove, one for the darker rooms!
“I Like It” is up next and we get another round of truly floor thumping kicks backed up with quality percussion and FX. The bassline has a smooth deep grooving effect and this blends so well with the overall vibe. Vocal samples peek through before the break and the track winds down, superb synths build tension on the break and before you know it we are back into full on party rockin mode with this top tune.
M.R.T.N take on remix duties on “Diffuser” and they ramp up the techno grooves in style. Much harder edged with tough gritty kicks and in your face bass. A multitude of percussive instruments provide a solid groove with flowing rhythms while on the break we get treated to some quirky bleeps and an intense riser to get us back into full swing, a must have for those dedicated techno arenas.
