new offering from techno mainstay Andre Salata
Salata is a multi-talented individual making an impact across the scene. He's a
globe-trotting DJ, producer on labels like Noir and Get Physical, has
collaborated with DJ Pierre and is also a lecturer of electronic music production
in a respected College in Sao Paulo. He is constantly exchanging ideas with his
peers and students so remains utterly fresh and inspired in the studio, and this
latest EP is testament to that once more.
Opener 'Free Fly' is a dark and driving techno powerhouse. It has a knotted
bassline that roams free while squelchy percussion and icy hi hats build up into
intense layers that lock you in the groove.
The excellent 'Hideout' is just as turbocharged, with hunched drums and pulse-
like synth stabs bringing to mind a turbulent trip through space. Another elastic
bassline brings real dynamism as acid gurgles increase the pressure further.
Last of all 'Nolinear System' is a more stripped-back and mysterious techno
track with rubbery drum programming and a more eerie atmosphere. Great
synth craft adds cinematic detail and ensures this is absorbing from start to
All three cuts here are masterfully constructed for maximum impact.
