Florido's relationship with Plus 8 owner Richie Hawtin stretches back to 2014, when he released on the feted techno producer's Minus imprint. However, Multiverse is an entirely different proposition; the title track sets the tone for the release with a pulsating, brooding bass and epic synth lines building up to a tranced out climax. Similarly on "The Long Fall", the Italian producer deploys a hypnotic, throbbing bass to devastating effect, as it provides an undercurrent for dreamy hooks and guitar chords. "Omniverse" sees a change in tact, as Florido adds deft filters to his bass-centric approach to techno. Rounding off the release in style is a melancholic, uplifting remix of the title track from Minus regular Matador.
Florido has previously released on Minus and now make his debut on another on Rukus, a label owned by another Hawtin affiliate, Matador. The title track is a flowing, good time affair, with chords surging and building over a rolling groove. On "Nagual", the London-based Italian DJ steers his sound in a darker direction - drums roll incessantly as a backdrop for murky, hazy synths. "Quantic" marks another change in approach. This time Florido veers into a pulsing hypnotic, acid-coated groove, the most trance-influenced track on the release. The pumping "Touch", an arrangement tailor-made for big room Ibiza clubs, rounds out this excellent EP.
