Cici debuts on Man Power’s ‘Me Me Me’ with four tracks of varied techno and two remixes from LA’s Warehouse Preservation Society and Philadelphia’s Zillas On Acid. The six track techno care package incorporates elements of percussive driven house, right through to hypnotic acid-techno.
CiCi has been rising through the ranks within the techno scene in recent times. Having previously released on Mella Dee’s imprint Warehouse Music, and featured on some weighty lineups including Circoloco in Ibiza, Boiler Room in London, Fabric London, as well as being tipped as one of Mixmag’s Breakthrough DJs of 2021. It’s fair to say the Irish native is seeing her fair share of success.
Her second EP now arrives on Man Powers imprint ‘Me Me Me’ and is sizzling with groove infused techno tools. The EP has already received some support from Sasha, Anja Schneider, AME, Red Axes, Truncate, Boxia and many more.
The EP opens with the pumping ‘Indigenous’, with subtle, enveloping pads unfurling to make way for ethereal synths under knocking drums before the A2, ‘Venus’ brings the energy up by delivering a snaking bassline under sharp, grooving percussion and heavily tripped out vocals.
Two remixes of ‘Venus’ follow, with Warehouse Preservation Society adding choppy breakbeats and wonky leads and Zillas on Acid injecting funky basslines and dubbed-out chops before the ‘Techno’ and ‘Deepr’ mixes of ‘Changeling’ close out the release. The former opts for heaving drum machines and rolling samples while the latter leans for heads down territory as the hypnotic groove carries the listener off into the night.
This release has got a little bit of something for everyone and is sure to be rocking festivals and basements alike, all summer long.
