Since meeting in Berlin during summer 2011, Christian Smith and Florian Meindl have stuck up a productive studio partnership. Having released their first collaboration - Desire - via Meindls FLASH imprint in December, this subsequent EP for Tronic sees the duo take their corporation a stage further with a two tracks of slightly left of centre yet unashamedly peak-time tech house.
Mothership leads off the EP with a distinctive retro-electro bassline that builds into the main hook via a series of peaks and drops before taking off into a tweaked crescendo of high-pitched tones. Red Alert opts for a subtler approach, creating its simple but effective groove from jacking percussion and wobbly synth stabs, which pulse throughout, morphing to distorting and echoing in the break.
