Motek is excited to welcome Chris Llopis to the label and his EP 'Clove / Beyond The Curve'. The Swedish producer has delivered a grooving and moody release, full of deep tones, subtle percussive elements and experimental synth lines. Both original tracks are rooted on their punchy kick and bass parts and hold extra weight due to the space they are given in the mix. 'Clove' is the more upfront of the two, with cutting choppy hi hats, swirling ride cymbals and direct synth sections. 'Beyond The Curve' is more understated and subtle, with the bass line holding the rhythm and keeping the track moving. The keys and pads are softer and filtered down adding a warmth to the production whilst variety and interest is added in the vocal additions and rolling builds. Remixing on this release it is fantastic to welcome Martin Landsky and back to the label Martin Aquino who has teamed up with Motek's Robert Roman. Martin Landsky has taken 'Clove' and made it his own. A bold and bouncy production, Martin has kept some of the lead synth elements of the original and added a strong stab keys section that filters in and out, from the subtle to the full on in your face sharp hit - a full bodied strong dance floor mover. Martin Aquino and Robert Roman have reconstructed 'Beyond The Curve', taking on a more minimal approach in stripping it back to let the groove do the talking. Hints to the original bass line and synth sections can be picked out amongst fresh percussive sections and a moving arrangement of highs, lows and intrigue.
