Johnny Trika is back on SCI+TEC to complete a tantalising trio of releases for the label. Having first made an appearance back in 2013 with his ‘Main Squeeze’ EP the Canadian producer then announced a return with the spikey ‘Punk Fools’ last summer.
Johnny’s bouncy rhythmic basslines have underpinned his previous work, and his latest collection of tracks are no different. Title track ‘Day Tripper’ thobs from the off, powered by its strong kick-drum, hollow percussion and escalating synth. Intense and powerful, the rise and fall of its master synth makes this a real helter skelter of a track.
True to its name ‘Double Trouble’ delivers a similar theme with its mistral rises and funky bass, before the ep is rounded up by the rampant drum work and frenzied vocal twists of ‘8th Voice’.
