Review: This is Confidential Recipe's third release on Rekids, and it sees him draw on classic house, techno and rave influences. "Dance" is redolent of Bobby Konders' vision for house, as a dark organ is combined with insistent stabs and a looped vocal sample. It's the kind of track that is tailor made for small, sweaty basements. On "Come (dub)", the Colombian producer ups the tempo; layering chiming chords over a driving steely rhythm, while he teams up with Manao for the original version of the track. Led by crashing break beats and featuring hoover stabs, it's a celebratory if somewhat nostalgic affair.
Review: Matt Edwards casts his eye to Latin America for the latest Rekids missive. While Confi-dential Recipe may be a new name, he cooks up a very tasty two-track EP. "'What You Think" is a superb piece of stripped back techno, revolving around a minimal rhythm un-derpinning a repetitive vocal loop. Like the most impactful techno, its simplicity is its most powerful weapon. "Drill" follows in a similar albeit slightly more intense vein - drawing on the influence of Luke Slater's Planetary Assault Systems sound, the Venezuelan pro-ducer's use of building metallic riffs and deft drops make for an impactful combination.
