With this record Terminal M presents the forefront of the Slovenian techno scene. Umek has been a prominent name for many years in the music business. He is popular for his skilful dj-performances and his passion for functional techno tunes. Besides that he appears being head of several labels such as 1605 - Sixteenofive, Astrodisco and Recycled Loops. For the Reason Revealed EP he joined forces with another Slovenian producer - Tomy DeClerque.
Also Tomy DeClerque is a well-known person in his home country: with his duo-project Tomy or Zox he released his first record in 1998 on the label Mantra Vibes. Only three years later he published his very successful house classic "Music Makes Me Happy" which was licensed for many prestigious compilations (e.g. Ministry Of Sound Compilation from 2002, DJ Awards at Pascha Ibiza 2002, Blanco Y Negro Mix...).
Tomy had his final breakthrough when he won the Vonyc Remix Contest with an outstanding remix of Valentino Kanzyani's Nueva York, which he had made together with F. Sonik.
Since 2007 he has published numerous tracks and remixes on sundry labels, that stick out with their clear arrangement and their pumping sound. You will also notice his characteristic style on our catalog number 65 (TERM065)!
"Reason Revealed" is a functional peak-time techno tune that instantly sets your legs in motion. Containing a bombastic break, a lot of playful rhythm effects and short cuts this track provides many rhythmic accentuations.
Also the flipside is perfectly made for the nighttime party freaky-ness. "Unintended Maneuver" sounds a little bit deeper than the a-side and sets the focus on a more catchy groove. In its middle section the track grows to unexpected hugeness and offers an extreme climax that first seems not to cease - but finally the noise vanishes into the original groove. Everyone who doesn't feel like putting his hands in the air to this track must be deaf..!
The newest digital only remix on Terminal M comes from Monika Kruse herself. In her version of Umek & Tomy DeClerque's amazing "Reason Revealed" she again shows her outstanding ability of creating that certain kind of a powerful drive that people from all over the world appreciate so much about her music. The main elements of the
original are still the foundation of the tune, but the break in her remix is shorter than the original one which has a good effect on the tempo of the track. With a strong bassline she creates a big climax that bursts out in the second half of the track. To describe it with three words: Techno par excellence!
