Following up from his superb contribution to the labels 2018 ADE sampler, ATMA delivers full EP of twisted tech cuts primed for dark basements and massive festival stages alike. Hailing from Melbourne and making his name in the Asian scene as one of the brains behind Bangkok's Kolour In The Park festival, ATMA's party starting, menacing, vocal laced sound is poised to explode around the rest of the world this summer.
The EP kicks off relentlessly with title track Destructo. A stomping kick drum is accompanied by a series of moody synth parts and rumbling sub-bass. The hypnotic vocal loop is cleverly woven into the track and used to effortlessly build tension.
Hot Creations mainstay Jey Kurmis follows his massive Mellco EP with a rework of Destructo. Lifting the tempo and punctuating the kick with a cleverly layered set of hats, Jey modulates and effects the synths and vocals to give us a bumpy and driving track dripping in his distinctly unique style.
The uplifting Don't Fret comes with a beautifully simple percussion pattern driven by a huge siren melody and clever rolling claps. Some seriously atmospheric crescendo's litter a track ideally poised for some peak time euphoria! Closing out the EP is the groovy Slip Step. Swung precision and sizzling hats are interspersed with more classic techno sounding kick, giving the track a serious sense of contrast as it builds and drops. Synths, vocals and production flicks cleverly dart in and out of the track, which will keep dancefloors on their toes and constantly moving!
