Our first premiere of the week comes from Izøtope boss man as he releases a four track EP on his Limerick based imprint. We premiere ‘Tribal Elements’ which does exactly what it says on the tin and provides a trip through Latin and African influenced percussion and rolling techno grooves.
Jon10 has been working immensely hard at creating a sound that is highly influenced by techno of the past, with an onus on 90’s style techno grooves and tribal rhythms. His work in the past has seen him release a number of high profile free downloads, a debut on Infiltrator’s, Sonic Intel imprint and a number of releases on his own imprint Izøtope.
Jon’s style of mixing and producing is derived from 90s/early2000s techno, which is evident with the sharp cuts and thundering grooves found in both his music and sets. Jon10 picked up music production not so long ago and is already embarking on a quest to revive the sounds that once graced the dance floors many decades ago.
The Limerick native now arrives back to Izøtope for the labels first EP with a four tracker from Jon10 along with a remix from Infiltrator. The four track EP explores all corners of the groovier aspects of techno by experimenting and dabbling with hypnotic synths, primitive tribal rhythms, groove infused patterns and dreamy chords.
Tribal Elements focuses on rolling and swinging percussive grooves, as syncopated rhythms bounce off thundering kicks, the track seem’s to slip and slide through various rhythms yet remains ultimately cohesive. Bongo’s and percs fly around this drum workout and it’s simply irresistible and a a heavenly for those who like their techno tool orientated.
