Reclaim Your City presents the third installation in itss devoted series showcasing talents from techno-centric regions across the globe, this time Dnepr, Ukraine and Vancouver, Canada are pinned on the map. With the Dnepr being Ukraine’s most significant navigable waterway and Vancouver being a large coastal seaport, these two cities stimulate the transfer of goods, including quality techno. This strong and distinguished release from Reclaim Your City is dedicated to long time companion and supporter of the label, Max_M. We shall continue this fight in your legacy.
Representing Dnepr Ukraine, Yan Cook opens the EP with ‘Hacked’, a powerful, spaced out track with divergent drum patterns that climb throughout the piece with the peak far out of view. Next up, Subforms explores a more tranquil approach to its voyage through the cosmos with ‘Omut’ where ominous yet calmative pads swirl in the distance while hi-hats and faint percussion advance the track. Finishing side-A, Stanislav Tolkachev gives a whole other meaning to ‘powerful’ with ‘Follow Me’ as an unremitting raw, chomping bassline is on a mission to destroy everything on the warpath.
On side-B, representing Vancouver, Kafka’s ‘Burr’ is an epic production, driving and deeply hypnotic, traveling at extraordinary speeds, emotions run high as you fight towards the finish. In ‘Perihelion’, The Automatic Message takes a vigorous approach with an intimidating bassline, but the track takes a surprising turn when a delicate synth emerges through the shadow.
