Carl Cox is an industry figurehead whos legacy in music includes his iconic label Intec, which he runs with friend and business partner Jon Rundell, and the new release is from label regular Fabio Neural.
Italian born Fabio Neural is known for the consistency of his productions that cover a full spectrum of techno but always with a dance floor focus. A popular DJ booking playing many of Europes top clubs and festivals, Fabio also boasts previous releases on labels including Dubfires SCI+TEC, Kaiserdiscos KD Music, Josh Winks Ovum, Andre Croms OFF Recordings, and Adam Beyers Truesoul.
Fabio Neural is a core member of Intecs family of artists, and this release marks his eighth EP on the label. One of those early EPs was made in collaboration with Alex Costa, but the rest have been solo efforts. Arguably one of Carl Cox and Jon Rundells favourite artists, this latest outing on Intec is another fine example of Fabios exceptional production skills.
Flow Beat kick starts proceedings and takes its title from the lyrics of the main vocal sample, which contrasts nicely with a second chanting style vocal that adds complimenting texture. Dark with an acid bassline and dramatic ambient stabs, this cut of charismatic techno has a great warehouse part vibe.
Taking things up a gear is System which has a heads down techno style built on hard hitting percussion and rhythmical synth stabs. Whereas some may consider the first track to be light hearted, the sinister vibe of this is a stark contrast.
