He’s back in the kitchen… After a summer of endless touring – including the illustrious position as one of the final DJs to ever play Space Terrace – Madrid-based Garcia has returned to his flavour lab to cook up a whole new wealth of grooves and the future is looking tasty. Last spotted on Pets in 2013 - and since serving up styles on some of the most respected labels in techno – Pokerflat, Freerange, Darkroom, Perspectiv and Supplement Facts - Garcia provides two quintessential winter warmers.
‘I Never Knew’ chugs with a full bodied dynamic that’s nicely reminiscent of Yoshitoshi 15-20 years ago as molten machines create a funk that wraps itself around the short-but-perfectly formed humanised sample. “Trimmer” lives up to its name with his signature Hypnotic Vibes less-is-more flow. A precision-chiselled groove that spirals deeper and deeper into itself, it comprises nothing but a bubblesome bass lick, sturdy kicks, subtle FX and an undulating synth line that ripples almost majestically. A serious DJ tool for those who like their understated blends to suddenly catch you by surprise, this is the epitome of restrained. Speaking of surprise, jump on Mr Tophat’s remix of ‘I Never Knew’. Closing the show with a true switch-flipper, the second you think you have the remix and its slinky Brett Johnson/Classis Music style groove locked down BOOM… In come those organs and a whole heap more. Nine minutes of heaven – you won’t be trimming this one down in a hurry. You won’t be trimming any of them (added: 2016-11-18 16:15:55 )
