AA017 FREAK EP ! We follow up this year with a strong vinyl EP by Portuguese torrero DJ Dextro. His name is cruising in the techno scene since nearly two decades (also with the alias „Redkone") and features a number of releases on labels like Suara, Toolroom, Nervous or Naked Lunch. Moreover he's the label owner of Tanira Records and Codein Music, and creates event concepts like the Red Room Sessions. „Freak" goes around straightly with jacked up techno and turns directly into the mind. The arpeggiated and speckless chord defines the track obviciously and thrills it up to a hypnotising assessed master of ceremonies. Second track on the A-side is called „Sinapse" and has a touch of more spherical techno, but deeply ingoing as well. A wide atmosphere is generated by winding pads and intertwining layered strings, which resolve in an acid peak. The other side starts with „Modulator" - an intense trip of shuffled and chopped elements. Evolving sounds bringing an enormous drive into the game and rises a vigorous tension. „Ghost In A Shell" consists as well of nicely modulated arp sounds and induce a proper drive. The emerging tale flips into warmly glitching parts which turns the mind crazy and completes this highly potential release.
