MUZIKA, VOL. 11 (SOUNDS R US RECORDINGS)

Our Muzika series continues to prove popular among the discerning listener, so much so that we now enter into our 11th instalment where we showcase more of the finest techno and tech house grooves around. This time out we enlist the talents of Javier Perez, Neil Daruwala, Gunther Robles, Sylar as well as our fearless leader, SRUR head honcho Oz Romita aka Ozan Kanik.

Oz Romita opens up this instalment of Muzika with The Tunnel Effect which intros with a classic kick and hat combi before a smooth, punchy offbeat bass tears up the groove and gets the track into full on mode. Bright open hats are prominent throughout and set a stark contrast with the lower sounds as tight drums set the track on fire with their rhythmic flow. Top notch effort yet again from Oz and one you will not want to miss.

Spanish DJ and producer Javier Perez is up next with Click Clock and this guy really sets the bar high when it comes to tight tech grooves. A solid workout formed out of an array of drums and percussions on top of a powerful low end bass. The big focus goes to the drums here, a beautifully crafted, intricate layered pattern keeps the rhythm on point while that bass shores up the bottom perfectly. A nice slice of tech that will tear up the floors no doubt.

Neil Daruwala & Gunther Robles are up with their track, Bad Guy. Neil notches up his first appearance on SRUR while Gunther is returning after his 2014 release Secret Annexe EP. Bad Guy intros with a nice punchy kick and various percussions that get the rhythm on the move early on. A lazy bass begins to show up and soon takes control of the groove. In the background cool chord stabs bring the house flavours to light while the rest of the track sits firmly in the tech arena. A solid, driving groove that will not disappoint.

Sylar returns to SRUR with Shadow Communication. We last saw him back in March 2015 on Muzika Vol. 10 and his track Long Distance. Sylar has had much success with his works on labels like, Shax Trax, Omnis Recordings and Teleskopik Recordings. Shadow Communications sets off with a very cool retro electro vibe that gets a superb makeover as the track progresses. Chunky kicks and sharp hats deliver a rhythmic flow to the sound as the bass plucks drive the groove. Metallic sounding synths and FX come through and bring the techno side to life as the bassline powers on relentlessly. Top notch stuff you must have in your armoury.

GUNTHER ROBLES – SECRET ANNEXE EP (SOUNDS R US RECORDINGS)

Gunther Robles returns to SRUR with the superb two tracker Secret Annexe EP. Gunther last appeared on remix duties for Gforty’s Sinful Soul EP and since then he has racked up a few of his own originals and remixes. Delighted to see him back at the helm for his full SRUR release.

First up we have Secret Annexe with its melancholic, dark tones which are manifested through a deep bass hit and low end chunky kicks. Cool percussions sit back before coming to the fore with crispy sharp hats and snappy claps. Synth pads start to rise as a prominent plucky bass takes centre stage with its acidic undertones. Those acid tones start to evolve and draw you into its grasp for the duration. Wonderful deep tech sounds that will no doubt be a feature in many sets.

The Raven goes right into full on mode from the off as punchy kicks are joined by rising pads and a deep sub bass alongside a plucked bass. The rhythm starts to boil as cool percussions are added to the mix. Manic arps that seem in disarray come to the fore and soon level out in intricate patterns that work so well. The track breaks with a dominate pad sequence to the backdrop of cool raven calls before we are thrust back into the full swing of the groove. Top notch stuff from Gunther that is not to be missed.
