This two-tracker marks the first appearance on Kompakt by Upercent, a Valencia-based producer arguably best known for a string of digital-only outings on Moda Black. He begins with "Parlem", a foreboding chunk of late night house intoxication where alien synthesizer motifs and held-note chords rise above a thrillingly booming, bass-heavy groove. The track boasts exotic instrumental flourishes too, which help to create an undeniably trippy, psychedelic mood. Upercent flips the script on "Tirant Lo Blanc", peppering a jaunty, broken tech-house groove with foreboding blasts of Balkan brass, jangling Mediterranean guitars and slowly building chords
Diynamic's various artist release series reaches its tenth edition. As usual, it is full of dance floor tracks that have been successfully road-tested by label owner Solomun. Spanish producer Upercent kick starts the release with the jittery rhythm of "Caos", its hypnotic bell chimes and dense rhythm containing tripped out vocal samples. By contrast, Eclept, from Russia, delivers a more malign sounding approach on "Rhythm for Me". The bass at the heart of the track soars and belches over a clicky, stripped rhythm. Giza DJs' contribution is "Reflection"; featuring Melody Stranger on pitch bent vocals, its melodies soar in a sublime fashion. Rounding off the release is the sun-kissed deep house of Bog's "Why Should".
