The Muzika train just keeps on running, already we are seeing the 10th instalment featuring some of the finest Techno cuts around from the likes of Harun Karabulut, Patrik Prelovsky, Dr. Mabuze and Sylar.
Harun Karabulut kicks us off with the fantastic Complex Gravity. Harun is no stranger to the Muzika series, he teamed up with Ozan Kanik on Volume 7 with Yavas Yavas back in 2014 and has been churning out quality cuts on various labels since. We’re delighted to see him back with this stomper. The track gets right into the bowels of Techno with chunky beats and a superb deep bass that packs a huge punch throughout. The tight arrangement is tied up with expertly crafted noise FX that sweep over the sound perfectly as classic chord stabs litter the groove. Top notch yet again from Harun, a track you will not want to miss.
Next up we have Patrik Prelovsky with Hypnotic. Czech Republic born Patrik quickly climbed the ranks as a DJ from a young age. He has shown up on various labels including Eyepatch Recordings, Mint & Mustard and many more with his brand of Techno fuelled cuts. Here, the track intros with a solid pumping kick drum and sharp accompanying hats and claps. A throbbing bass forms up from below and brings a hypnotic rhythm to the sound. Short and snappy percussive hits play a big role here and add to the infectious grooves within the track. Cool vocals litter the sound as stabby synths join in. A definite floor hitter that will have you hooked in for the duration.
Dr. Mabuze debuts on SRUR with Same Question and turns up the heat with his sublime Techno grooves. The intro sets the tone perfectly and takes us deep into the sound with muted kicks and downward spiralling notes. The kick drum transforms delivering a huge punchy hit alongside crispy hats that get the rhythm flowing with a little help from a tight drum arrangement. A dark tone develops as the track progresses with the introduction of an eerie, deep and raspy vocal. Powerful stuff that will keep the floors alive no doubt.
Sylar marks a full SRUR debut with Long Distance. We last saw him back in 2012 on remix duty for Calbos’s The Grind which was very well received. Today we get the full on deep experience right from the off as nice punchy kicks are joined by a rhythmic percussion section. Grainy synth stabs dominate the track with their sketchy lines and infectious aftertaste. The bass rolls through the sound perfectly and keeps the groove pumping while adding to the hypnotic flavour. A masterful slice of Techno that is not to be missed.
