An energetic, bouncy Mediterranean tech-house beast of a track that is easily recognized by its catchy Ooo sample, Sion begins by layering propulsive tribal elements before its keynote sample takes center stage. Washing over the track throughout is a giant wall of sound that keeps the energy level high. Its a relentless track which only tamps down the energy slightly through fevered breakdowns.
Chrome (8:10)Chrome is a trademark Mindshake tech-house tool track custom made to be layered in the mix. With a hypnotic tribal bump, chanting voices and breathy moans, the track maintains a slow build but still keeps energy levels high. The female vocals that emerge and shift as the mix evolves adds yet another layer of dynamism. Raw 301 (7:09)The closest thing to a pop track John Lagora has attempted yet, Raw 301 enters the experimental pop realm with this vocal-heavy techno stormer. Tweaked and effected vocal tics add a strange LSD-induced chorus-backdrop, while a deeper male voice keeps the track grounded with lurid whispers. Highly detailed, intricate percussion peppers the track, while horns and sirens bubble up underneath until the track peaks with a euphoric cacophony.
On a darker tip, Black pummels out of the gate with a rolling techno beat and overcast atmospheric effects. As the track accelerates, the sound design takes the dancers deeper into the pitch-black. Tension is lifted sporadically with some hip-hop inspired breakbeat segues, but John keeps his foot firmly on the floor and propels the dancefloor into the darkness.
