Anthony Child and Juan Rico bring to life the twenty-sixth in the mental disorder catalogue, giving a truly unexpected musical twist.

Reeko / Architectural – The Blue Album [POLEGROUP018]
The Blue Album is Spanish producer Juan Rico’s new album. He is the mind behind Reeko and Architectural, two projects that on this occasion melt into one offering a wide perspective of the nuances of his sounds. Here you can find all the aspects of techno sound, from ambient landscapes, to dubby and liquid textures or pulsating abstract techno exercises. “Blue” starts the trip with dubbed echoes, floating textures and fat spaced out chords: the best way to switch on the ignition and prepare for the upcoming sonic voyage.
Exium / Reeko – Enemies of the Indestructible EP [POLEGROUP014]
Pole Group presents a back to back venture between Exium and Reeko. The A side is the duo’s territory. ‘DragN’ starts with a sharp beat that soon becomes infected by synthesized drones moving through the stereo and bell like sounds with hypnotic sequencing. This track means a departure from the classic Exium sound, where lower tempos and less aggressive sounds take control. The second track, ‘Zero Summing’, dives into broken rhythms and deeper atmospheres, with drones and white noise sweeps that fight all over the arrangement to create a claustrophobic feel.On the B side, Reeko provides ‘Electrical Phenomena’. Analogue drums start the affair till the 808 sub kick appears, moving to the lower frequencies. Clear and precise hats help moving the groove and high frequency sweeps, whilst resonant textures take over the arrangement from minute 2 onwards. ‘Emission of Electrons of a Surface’ closes the release. Dark and deep drums ascleverly programmed as ever, running on an infinite loop salted with bleeps and microtextures that lay under the ominous rhythm.
Reeko – Ella Episodio 3 [MD016]
Juan Rico aka Reeko presents the Episodio III of Ella. Featuring two tracks “Segmento 5” and “Segmento 6” and this EP is on the dub side of techno. In terms of his quality and skill, these tracks show that he must be brimming with ideas.
Architectural – Peacetime [SEMANTICA040]
