Descend Records continues to assert itself with a fresh sound, this time thanks to the work of Alessandro Grops. This Elrow Music and Phobiq associate hails from Italy and has a taste making sound, and here his originals get a remix by Barbuto.
Moxie is first up and is a heavyweight roller with slick kicks and dark synths making you feel like you're trapped in a desolate urban environment. It's the sort of tune that will erupt once the emotive female vocals land and make their mark. Barbuto remixes and hammers home the groove with monstrous kicks and icy hi hats making for a perfect bit of contemporary techno. The next original is Grinder, which pairs more thunderous claps and spine tingling synths with rolling drums and a late night sense of mischief to make this a powerful EP overall.
