Today’s premiere is coming in hot from Sync resident and Leitrim-based DJ and Producer, Havik (Fearghal Feely). The talented young artist has provided us with a fabulous track from his debut EP on Intra Records titled Sumatra, oozing with infectious synth lines and some clear inspiration deriving from the 90s with a touch of powerful drums for good measure.
Fearghal Feely established his solo alias two years ago in an attempt to showcase his musical journey as he delves into raw, stripped-back yet driving and sometimes trippy techno productions. He has since been dedicated to working on establishing his sound by means of consistent work in the studio for hours on end. Havik’s unreleased began to gain support from numerous artists such as Marron, Truncate, Kaiser, Alarico, Marcal, and more in recent times which signified a step in the right direction.
After this string of success, he has now decided it is time to release his first solo EP on Intra Records. This comes as an exciting time in the young DJ and producer’s journey as you can expect a number of scheduled releases on Aktiv, Syxt, and Meatmarket to drop later this year. Expect this year to be nailed with a full-on flurry of new material from Havik.
Sumatra is a thrilling techno track that possesses that infectious sound and feel that is reminiscent of its older counterparts from the 90s. Encompassing a sound that is powerful and driving while steadily building the flow of energy during the progression of the track. For those who are fans of Jeff Mills and Robert Hood, check this out.
