ROD makes a welcome return to Soma Records for his first solo EP since he lent his hand to two powerful new school updates of Slam classic Positive Education. The Buikgrep EP delivers two jacking Techno monsters, delivered in RODs unique style. Think dark warehouses, strobe lights and fist pumps!
Buikgrep kicks off the EP as a thunderous kick drum bumps its way over a syncopated hi-hat pattern while slowly mutated stabs work their way in over the track. Slowing in pace to the break where the drums fire back with full force, unrelenting to the end of the track. ROD has definitely designed this one for the dance floors.
Second track Mission at first feels more on a house tip with a lighter sounding stab prevalent from the get go. Dont let this fool you however as this track it just as jacking as the previous. The synth opens up into a typical ROD hypnotic loop whilst the drums once again rattle around with total ferocity!
ROD is firmly placing himself in the top tier of the new school generation of Techno producers and these two dance floor bomb are testament to someone who has immersed themselves in dance music for well over a decade.
