Having reached double digits on its release roster, Amsterdam-based techno label Format presents its 11th release. And it’s a three-piece ensemble by label honcho Juan Sanchez himself. FR011 delivers three techno bombs that perfectly reflect the Format sound. Things kick off with Despite the..., which combines deep grooves to staccato bass pulses designed for peak-time moments. Spanish DJ/producer Aiken delivers a superb remix that is propelled by a nasty industrial groove and coated in dark atmospheres. Closing the release is the sinister In The Dark, which is as deep as it is trippy... FORMAT second 2017 release is another prime example of the label’s coveted sound.
