Inspired by many of the industrys pioneers, such as, Ricardo Villalobos, Masomenos, Marc Antona, Rhadoo, Seuil, Cabanne, Petre Inspirescu and Danny Tenaglia, to name but a few, Counrad has been strongly influenced by deep and meaningful techno, since he began his plight in the industry.
Music has always been at the forefront, for this Italian DJ/producer , and the Inwave and Counrad Series labels boss relishes the challenge of crafting techno that reveals itself gradually to the more discerning listener, fusing a multitude of grooves from contrasting musical styles, with a combination of sexy rhythms, subtle textures and emotive melodies.
In this first release for Metroline Limited, Counrad showcases the full spectrum of his versatile production skills.
The title track Underwater is a full on 15 minutes epic chunky minimal monster that just keeps on building.
This amazing piece of work takes the listener on a journey that starts with hypnotic minimalism and finishes with some intricate trippy techno.
On the flipside you can find the dark and percussive peak time tech-house grooves of Particle Collsisions and some uber-cool modern machine funk minimalism in the shape of the closing track Synapse.
