Another week brings another relentless techno outing from !Organism, and this time the man behind it is Brian F, with a remix from Ricardo Garduno.
Brian F hails from South Africa but has been Europe based for a decade now. He has long been collecting music making toys, synths and percussive instruments and has also put on his own small and intimate techno gatherings before now. Now based in London and running his own label Shaping Music, he is a regular at places like The Egg and Ministry of Sound.
Up first here is the fantastic white knuckle ride that is Agarrate with its sleepy synth lines hypnotising your mind as your body moves to the slick kick patterns. Its a nice bouncy groove that journeys deep into the night and is full of machine made soul. Ricardo Garduno remixes in great style with a bulkier drum line and a tripper synth styling that makes this one sound like a lost Jeff Mills cut.
The standout Intento is a boisterous, in your face techno banger with firm claps and incessant synth stabs working you into a frenzy. Clever filters and subtle bass fills add drama to this most turbulent of tunes. Then comes a big finish in the form of Vigoroso, a raved up, full on techno slammer with belly stabs, intense synths and cantering drums that cannot fail to make a big impact on any dance floor.
Brian F and Ricardo Garduno both prove they are techno talents to be reckoned with on this latest and greats !Organism release.
