Slam has been running Soma for almost a quarter century, but as Barcelona 3am demonstrates, they haven't lost their A&R skills. The latest signing to the label, Spanish producer Reeko, captures the prevailing dark mood in techno. The title track starts with deep, dubby beats before he introduces some ghoulishly eerie riffs and speaker threatening subsonic bleeps. "Flaming" is in a similar mould, with Reeko adding some churning filters to the mix, but without losing the underlying, ominous mood. However, he lets loose on closing track "Heartbeat Error", where the combination of rolling rhythm and heavy kicks underscores a series of ringing alarm bell effects.
