Darko De Jan explores the intricacies of techno with Reflections. From start to finish we are drawn into and captivated by this solid mover. Deep bubbling basses rise from the depths while a tight drum arrangement sets the rhythm loose. The break unleashes a sublime synth sequence as a playful arp dances through the sound. Top notch stuff that is not to be missed.
Silent Mayhem goes deep into progressive with a sublime effort full of beautifully crafted synths and a wonderfully rhythmic groove. A deep purring bassline wraps us up in a warmth that won’t let got while stabbing synths break through the low frequencies. A high string adds tension as the layers build all around alongside cool vocals that give the track a darker character. Superb stuff that is not to be missed.
