Flores (Dylan Delaney) has come through with an absolute belter of a tune. His single ‘Pure Heart’ is a fast-paced techno track that derives inspiration from old school analogue techno influences, while coupling his own musical flavour and approach in creating this wonderful composition. An abundance of bleep and bloopy sounds can be heard throughout. What a treat.
Flores has shown to be a force to be reckoned with in recent months. Playing an array of shows spanning all across the country. Shows in Galway, Limerick, Offaly, Dublin and more. Having supported the legendary Mauro Picotto in Galway, selling out a headline Shed Residents Show in February with Mav666 and recently being booked for a headline show in Cork as well as a Waterford booking it is clear that the future is bright for this young, talented and driven DJ and producer.
Flores, who is co-owner of CNTRL, a label and events collective, was formerly Galway based and has recently made the move to Dublin. Like that, CNTRL have also focused on the Dublin party landscape where they are eager to introduce a harder, more brass techno sound to the city. Having recently ran their debut Dublin show where they booked Resonance, a party that turned out to be a big success, it will be interesting to see what CNTRL has up their sleeve over the coming months.
Pure Heart begins with a vocal echoing ‘I stay on the line’ right before other crucial elements are introduced to the production. You are then met by a compelling kickdrum and bassline that is as stimulating as it is refreshing. Implement some groove infused hi-hats and an extra element of swing is then introduced to the track, which really elevates the intensity of the recording. Some clever bassline sequencing and percussive elements are presented which gels this production together perfectly and can clearly be heard for what it is. A certified banger. The overall evolution and build of momentum of this track is phenomenal. Give it a listen!
