Review: Balthazar & JackRock return to Coyu's Suara imprint after 2018's Physical Addiction. This time, the pair set the intensity levels racing from the get-go with "Immutable", which resounds to a frenetic, acid-fried rhythm, rave stabs and rolling snares. The title track is of a similar dis-position, with murderous bass stabs, high-pitched synth lines and thun-derous drums setting the pace. Meanwhile, "Suburban Preacher" sees the Bulgarian duo draw on hardcore influences for the track's eerie synth builds and buzzing bee bass. Add in insistent vocal sample and insistent drum rolls and the overall result is a brutally effective dance floor techno track.
Review: Tomas Ferrari and Maurizio Tramontana aka Beico & MT93 team up for a scintillating follow-up to last year's Eternity release on Suara. The title track is a peak time affair that resounds to filtered drums and a brooding, menacing bass. On "Black Eyes", the pair delivers a pounding rhythm that breaks down into white noise drops, while "Covenant" involves a different approach as gurgling acid lines unravel over a searing bass. Clearly, the duo is inspired by a range of sounds and styles, and "66 Angels" comes across like a modern, streamlined version of techno-trance, that early to mid-90s sound that encapsulated searing 303s and epic melodic highs - realised here against a back drop of pounding, punishing kicks.
Review: British duo Campelphat are back with more fat tech house grooves, this time coutesy of Barcelona's always roaring Suara imprint. Strap yourself in for the peak time energy of lead track "Deets" with its hi-octane arpeggio, furious beats and their MCs rapid fire rhythm just adding to its intensity. "Lizard King" is more of a funked up and rolling affair that's geared for summertime crowds and will appeal to fans of the Gruuv or Saved sound. Finally be prepared for what sounded like the greatest progressive house anthem of all time (that you've never heard yet) on "The System". Some seriously life affirming vibes on this ripper. Hit prediction right here!
