Justin Berkovi – Drive [ART-DDS8]

BERKOVI, Justin - Drive

Justin Berkovi delivers 2 heads down mid-tempo Techno dance tracks for his ART debut. Clean, crisp production with thunderous low end characterise both tracks. The title track Drive delivers its power via modulating synth stabs, whilst When I Throw Down commands the dancefloor with its demonic vocal.

Future Past – Game Theory EP [ART-DDS007]

Kirk Degiorgio dusts down his Future Past moniker for a no-nonsense techno release. The title track typifies the EP, with a bubbly bassline and doubled up claps supporting whooshing, churning filters. It’s the same approach on “Sparta”, where a walking bass and warbling acid lines suggest a clean, pure sound, but then an intense filter pushes it into the realms of peak-time techno. “Skrunch” dispenses with the lighter, more playful elements in favour of a tunnelling groove that flows to the sound of arcing acid and a dark riff undertow, while “An Act of Modulation” completes the transfer from bubbly techno to a leaner-edged sound with squelchy tones tweaked against the backdrop of an insistent spiky rhythm track.
