Belgian technoist Van Czar returns to his Bonzai Basiks home with another superb cut in the form of Cherry Lovers. Van is all about the music, he never fails to deliver the goods, with quality always at the forefront. Aside from creating cuts like this he is constantly on the lookout for great new music for his label CZ, which is already gathering a hugely impressive back catalogue of sounds. Last time around on BB Van gave us the impressive Danse Du Petit Matin which was very well received indeed. He has also released several techno gems on his own CZ both as a solo artist and in collaboration with several artists. We always look forward to his latest offerings, he never disappoints.
First up we have Cherry Lovers and if the name suggests something mellow and subtle then you are mistaken. This one goes industrial with a pounding dirty kick drum backed up with a slicing hi hat and chasing cymbals. The big hitter right from the off is the analogue style hypnotic bass that will have you hanging from the walls before the night is over. Dark and murky sounds fill the background and on the break you need to be prepared to blown away. A massive track from Mr Techno that is most definitely not to be missed.
Van Czar delivers another retro themed techno slice in the form of the superb Rebels. The kick drum alone will take you back, pumping an powerful, you just know it will fill a venue with a pounding beat. Hypnotic percussions fade up to deliver a scathing attack on the senses before settling into a rhythmic sequence. An absolute monster of a track, this is techno.
