Highlighting sets everywhere from Awakenings during ADE to Spazio 900 in Rome, the tracks are hard-hitting master studies in industrial-edged techno. ‘Going Down’ is built around a deep menacing vocal, as subterranean bass drums, thundering kicks and a sinister synth line combine for a high impact finish. ‘Future’ is a chunky stomper perfect for the winter warehouse party season, as multi-layered synths and effects rub shoulders with heavy-set drums to ensure this one hits its target.
“I’ve always liked collaborations – they bring out the best in me. I’m also a big fan of Dense & Pika’s raw sound, so this worked well. Chris and Alex are great to produce with and are really clear with their vision when they make music. I like their work techniques where they a running things through hardware and recording live takes and cutting them up in DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). I used to work a lot like that in the past, so we have a similar work-flow. They are also funny in a dry English sort of way which suits me perfectly.” – Adam Beyer
