Adultnapper has been working a lot with M.A.N.D.Y., producing '201' and the recent 'Kindling' release on Get Physical. The three friends bring us another release, inviting Detroit's Kenny Larkin and Kris Wadsworth to the controls for their perspective on things, while Daria takes a different path. In short: these guys make a damn good mix.
The boys first bring us a steamy mix of percussion and bass served on chilled tones. The track takes us through many places throwing eerie ambience at us at every directions and then gives us the beat in true M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Adultnapper style.
Kenny Larkin takes us into his night. A highly infectious mix of wide pads and addictive vocal cuts riding a deep kick. The track leaves 4/4 in the dust and teaches us how to groove in the found chaos. The energy that comes straight from within and wonderful production is what really captures us. This is main time in Berghain's Pano' Bar with Kenny Larkin.
Kris Wadsworth reveals a heavier side of tech, starting with dramatic percussives and dampened melody. Paired with Kris natural ability to produce an irresitabel dirty techno sound, 'Bus Ted' captures our attention quick. This is a dark mix expected to move bodies on the floor.
Daria starts things out with a dusty vocal trapped under a sheet of effects. Very beneficial to the overall ambience of the track. The track opens for the rhythmic chords, muted yet thick. Strings rise slowly as kicks stutter their way through the crowd and push towards the sonic front.
The final H2 remix on this EP begins with a deep, almost dreamy intro, only to jump on the bass with energy and ambition. The kick and the bassline work together beautifuly, creating a deep groove and taunting us from the dancefloor.
