Serbian artist RanchaTek makes his debut on Intec following releases on Orange Recordings, Loose, Bitten, Nervous and Unity Records.
Listing Carl Cox as a significant influence alongside people like UMEK and Richie Hawtin, this EP is an extra special one for Vladimir Rancic aka RanchaTek who has always wanted to feature on Intec.
A regular performer at many of Serbias top techno events, its also not uncommon to see him on DJ line-ups in other countries such as the Czech Republic, Bosnia and Croatia.
Dark with a relentless intensity, the two tracks on this EP have contrasting moods with Defect having a focus on deep atmosphere while the up-tempo groove of Freak raises the roof with its hard-hitting style.
"Defect" has a subtle euphoria cut by bursts of acid while the underpinning percussion provides a steady momentum immersed in shadowy atmospherics.
Second on the EP Freak has a heavy kick drum that pounds underneath the stabbing synths and onslaughts of the thrashing hi-hats while the commanding vocals complement the pulsating rhythms of the bassline.
