Otto Veisenberger aka Ascaloon and Zoltan Salai aka Chrono join forces with their debut on SRUR with this superb three tracker “Balkan Express EP”. Both guys hail from Subotica, Serbia where they DJ at top clubs and festivals. They have a hugely impressive back catalogue on many labels with tech house, deep house and techno being their main styles. Otto first got into music at the age of 10 when he would play records from the 70’s and 80’s. This developed into a full blown DJ career and productions soon followed. Zoltan also began his musical journey at an early age with DJing being his big focus with many gigs all over the country. He soon met up with Otto and they began to organise parties all over Serbia and they were tagged as the “new generation”, like his friend he soon found himself on the producing side and now they emerge with this stomper.
First up is “South Singer”, a techno cum deep house hybrid with all the trappings you’d expect. Nice chunky kicks and sharp hats provide a steady rhythm with a superb bassline showing early on. Cool deep chords give that house vibe with an expert display of FX on offer. A brilliant vocal sample adds texture to this top tune.
“Jungo” is up next with a full on techno flavour, real chunky kicks overlay an amazing percussion section with a huge deep bassline throbbing throughout. Classic stabs come through on the break with FX shoring up the sound. A very surreal flute riff is coupled with some great vocal samples to round off this top notch track.
“Let’s Fuck” gets right into deep tech grooves from the off, flowing rhythms on the percussions are accompanied with some groovy basslines and high pitched strings. Short vocal samples and brilliant FX are done very well here. Straight in your face tech with a bouncy vibe that will go down well in the darker rooms.
