Belfast based Louis Irvine follows his previous Progrez techno slice – Malfunction – with the impressive two track In My Mind EP. Malfunction and its B-side Time Bomb proved popular among techno jocks and featured in many playlists and charts, it also made its way onto top compilations and it’s no surprise that many floors were rocked by its presence. Louis remains consistent in his approach to making music, all the while learning new tricks and methods. He puts in a lot of studio time as he strives for only the very best quality sounds. Much more to come from this guy so well worth keeping any eye on.
In My Mind sets off with a pumping kick drum and cripsy hi hat combi that is joined by a hypnotising rising synth. Subtle percussions create a superb texture making the track sound fuller while adding a splice of rhythm. This one goes deep, very deep, we find ourselves locked into a full on techno monster that powers on relentlessly. The vocal is a massively powerful tool on this one as it creates a wonderful trippy experience. A definite must have here that will boost any late night set.
Pandorum takes us deep into the techno abyss with its pumping kick drums and mesmeric pulsing pads. Bright and crispy hats cut through the lower frequencies like a knife and pave the way for a range of percussions to come through. A big focus goes towards the drums here but the pulsating pads, sharp synths and FX add cool textures putting this one squarely in the must-play-to-rock-crowd bag, this one does not disappoint.
