AdMaiora is proud to announce another release. No one other than Arado makes his debut on our label with ‘Even If U Have’ EP.
Hailing from Düsseldorf, Arado made his strong entrance in the music scene back in 2010 with ‘Uganda Express’ (with Den Ishu): since than he’s been Loco Dice’s protégé for a long time, with several appareances on Desolat, Area Remote and Snatch! to name a few. He also had some very successful collaborations with Italian Marco Faraone, which were released on Moon Harbour and Etruria beat too.
Arado debuts on AdMaiora with a three-tracker EP entitled ‘Even If You Have’. The main track is a strong and aggressive rolling techno jam, where stomping kicks meet rough grooves. Constantly moving and evolving, he goes a bit away from his typical dub-melodic signature, showing his darker side.
On the remix duty we have the honor to see Vatos Locos’ man himself Hector. Fresh of the foundation of his own ‘VL Recordings’ and after a super-party season which culminated at the ‘BPM FESTIVAL 2016’, he rocks with his personal vision of the original. In his version of ‘Even If You Have’ we can find his unmistakable sense for deep tech grooves with a fat and dry old school hi-hat, giving his personal ‘club alert’ twist.
On the B side we have two more originals: ‘Takin My Time To Perfect The Beat (YO)’ kicks off the things with an housy hi-string on the intro and while the groove starts taking control of the track, some dubbin’ and delayed big stabs creates a perfect ambiance for opening sets or afterhours.
‘Lead In’ is another dancefloor must have, where mainroom percussions and full-bodied bassline perfectly match together, giving life to another club smasher.
