Since making a high profile debut on Christian Smiths Tronic imprint last summer with the Underground Sound Of Lisbon sampling Dust, Bart Skils has gone on to establish himself as an integral part of Tronics label roster alongside Marc Romboy, Dosem and Wehbba. This latest EP sees Skils change gear once again to deliver two more techno flavored tracks; contrasting with the tech house of Dust and the electro-trance fusion of previous release, Hold Your Horses
Walking At My Girl is a feverously energetic cut founded on Skils rock solid percussion. Snappy, rolling beats and swinging snare fills take their place at the top of the mix while the heavy kick booms in the background to provide a foundation for tense, jittery stabs and pulsing electronic chords to add a more musical dimension and set the stage for the vocoder vocal hook to draw you in.
Observer keeps the strong percussive theme going, illuminating a tracky and linear groove of tight marching loops and heavy chugging sub-bass with a feel-good chord pattern and uplifting pads that is certain to bring smiles and raise hands on the floor. Simply arranged and subtly executed, the result is a cool underground vibe with plenty of forward momentum and party-starting moments.
