Their latest VA offering see’s music from Arta Fact, Bours?, Jon10, Loskatt, Outer909, & West Code. The EP pays homage to the mid 00’s style of techno that swept through Europe, yet takes massive influence from Latin sounds, often finding the style referred to as tribal techno or as Ben Sims coined it, Hardgroove. Jarring percussion, unapologetic filter-sweeps, cheeky vocal chops, and funk-laced basslines are on display here.

The youngster keeps his foot firmly on the pedal on this one, ramping up the speed, and layering his latest offering with pummelling bass grooves and 90’s style stabs & vocal chops.
