Review: New Zealand hype professor Trei returns with his first full single of the year: "Tonto". Packing collaborative heat from fellow countrymen The Upbeats, "Tonto" is halftime turned on its head. While most halftime tracks focus on the space, this focuses on filling the space but minimising the kicks. The end result is a truly unique concoction that's tailored for crowd slaying. "Shangri-La", meanwhile, is a straight up traditional banger like mamma use to make. If your mamma is a whizz in the studio and knows her way round a gully sound palette that is.
Review: Fifteen years. Can you believe it? Actually, the question we should be asking is; can you remember what the world was like without before Technique was championing the darker end of high energy drum and bass? Featuring absolute classics from the likes of Drumsound & Bassline Smith, Crissy Criss and Technique's own intelligent production scientist, it also features music from Trei, whose recent EP took is a must-check! There are also bone shaking tracks from brand new and up and coming artists like MaxNRG and Kronology whose productions sit perfectly alongside the greats.
