Spanish DJ and producer Victor Vera is back with SRUR with his two tracker "Block Party EP". Victor's first release here came with his "Thermonuclear Reaction" on Muzika Volume 2. That same release also appeared on compilations with Bonzai Progressive and Bonzai Basiks. The title track "Block Party" is up first. Solid intro with classic kick and hat combi with other percussive features filtering through. The bass comes through with a bounce adding a lot of energy to the sound. The FX work is top quality and it blends in so well. Great work on the vocal sample give the track an edge. Top stuff again from Victor and will no doubt get a lot of attention. "Schwarm" is up next, the intro boasts softly keys which are twisted and morphed into a wall of synth before the kicks and electro percussion free it and set up a steady groove. These transformations continue throughout and shape the sound nicely into a solid hypnotic rhythm.
