The mighty UMEK always serves up heavy techno tunes and does so again here on the FORM Music label. After 20 years in the game he is still finding fresh new forms in the genre and never fails to excite.
Quest Chain is first and is a tense and tight white knuckle ride through increasingly tough techno. A raw bassline underpins the whole thing as cantering drums race along. It’s for big rooms and warehouses and will get the attention of the whole club. Standard Cold is next and is another darkened techno roller that takes you deep into the night. The percussion rumbles, the synths are forceful and the whole thing builds in intensity with huge hi hats. As such this is a powerful EP.
