Sounds R Us Recording are gearing up for another, no doubt successful trip, to this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event. Label boss Oz Romita has put together an outstanding package with previously released and exclusive material showcasing the diverse range of styles and many talents of the producers on his labels books.
Ozan Kanik features no less than three times throughout this pack with his first offering being the techno fuelled “Fiction”. This track comes in the shape of a superb remix by the mighty Tom Hades and is bound to cause a stir among many at this year’s parties and beyond.
Dutch DJ and producer Steve Mulder returns to SRUR with a sublime techno cut on his track “Matador”. Steve has a hugely impressive release count across many labels and has worked alongside the world’s top jocks and artists.
Ozan’s next offering is the aptly titled “ADE 2013″, a techno stomper with merciless rhythmic grooves that will certainly have the event patrons looking for more, one to watch here!
Analog Effect aka Dutch duo Jan Boom and Branko Van Hilten are up next with “Plovdiv”. The guys are fresh off the back of their last SRUR outing alongside Jay Junior with “Diffuser EP”. This time around the guys take techno into deeper grooves and come up with a proper banging track, superb stuff.
Ozan’s third contribution is in collaboration with CLN83 on their track “Neat & Clean” which saw great reviews upon release. For this comp the Drumcomplex & Roel Salemink Remix was chosen and it brings with it a darker more sinister techno sound that has a huge effect as it draws you in completely.
Miami based DJ and producer Rod B. is back with his full SRUR release after well received remixes earlier in the year. “24HR Amsterdam” is a classic driving techno groove and just what you’d expect from the highly talented Rod B..
W&DY aka Wendy Wustlich is up next to showcase her diverse skills in production. This time Wendy turns on the progressive house with attitude tap and what we get is the stunning “Heartbeat” which will for sure get those pulses racing!
Label head honcho Oz thumps out a fantastic deep house joint on his track “Changes”. Oz has a brilliant and unique way of injecting energy into his sounds and here is no different, yes it’s deep house and yes it’s full of energy which is what we like!
Finishing off this amazing pack is the talented duo of M.R.T.N AKA Sthlm Beat and Pomp with “Behind The Iron Curtain”. Massive techno sound on the with a harder edge groove, a track that will have the floors at ADE bouncing for sure.
M.R.T.N are made of Sthlm Beat and Pomp. The guys produce together and have released under other guises including The Bunglers for SRUR. Sthlm Beat also performs as DJ M.R.T.N. and today we see this stunning techno fuelled monster “Desnoid EP” get a release.
First up is the tough edged “Abdominal” which gets right down to business from the off with a rolling techno groove. Tough kicks are layered with some outstanding percussions and a sharp, crisp hat. The track takes on an almost oldschool techno flavour with the percussions rising in pitch creating a hypnotic vibe, top notch stuff.
“Desnoid” takes a slightly more minimal approach, again we see a superb arrangement and a very rhythmic drum section. The synths have that retro style sound we all love and the guys have brought this sound up to date brilliantly. On the break the FX work is expertly crafted and creates a cool climax back into the track, definitely a tune that will feature heavily in techno sets.
“Panzerfaust” is a tune that makes you realise what techno nowadays is all about. Thumping kicks and a deep bassline are the perfect platform for the groove mapped out by the brilliant synth work. Lots of percussive elements with cymbals and hats coming through perfectly and FX that will blow your mind, one to watch for sure!
