After a great debut on the label as part of the V/A release Figure SPC R, new Spanish talent Regal is fully welcomed to Figure with his first EP. Showing off his ear for a twisted Acid line or two, Regal provides three tracks on the vinyl edition of Figure 62, and also a bonus burner for the digital realm.
The rising tension of 'Monomyth' is classic 90s acid, accented by the ear of a young man who is very much living in the present. Refined and tracky, Regal draws out every last drop of energy from a mere handful of well tuned ingredients, peaking his acid line sky high. The snaking, heads-down 'Symbol' fits very much with Figure's 2014 manifesto - driving, precise modern techno, with clever arrangements that simple beg repeat listening and club play. The tweaking, after-hours vibes of 'Pointillism' continue this with a totally playable, bubbling minimalist killer. Finally a more raucous offering can be found served up in the form of digital bonus track 'Pompous' - completing an accomplished DJ's record from a name to watch. (added: 2015-01-05 16:16:37 )
