One of Monog’s best known and prolific artists returns with more deep tech goodness for our listening pleasure. Luis Bravo delivers his two track Bubbles & Dues EP and once more we’re blown away with this guys’ creativity and professional approach. He stands out as a highly respected artist in his field, striving to maintain quality sounds in everything he does and this is evident just by listening to his work. His last appearance on Monog was back in November 2015 on remix duties for Pulse8’s Feel the Way EP, delighted to have him back for more.
Bubbles sets off with a silky smooth warm vibe that slowly builds up into a solid slice of deep techno goodness. A tight drum arrangement leads the charge which is backed up by shuffling hats that generate a fine flowing rhythm. The low end dominates here though, those bass melt into the groove beautifully and are accompanied by perfectly placed percussions for maximum effect. A classic vibe can be felt off this one, a floor mover for sure.
Dues opens with crispy hats and sharp claps that form up into a cool rhythmic shuffle. Nice and chunky kick drums soon follow with a deep pounding bass in tow. The drums here are exquisite, they’re tightly packed into a solid arrangement that flows effortlessly. The techno groove just oozes out of this one thanks to some gritty synths and that huge bass. A nicely building track that will be a welcome addition to any late night techno set.
