Naples native Antonio Russo aka Adapter joins the Desolat family with a sublime four track EP entitled Gain. With previous outings on the likes of Get Physical, Octopus, VIVa, and now Materialism, Adapter appears to be in a rich vein of form, with his next EP on Desolat pushing him further into the limelight.
A-side Gain is a warbling peak time builder. A perfect combination of thudding techno bass, driving drums licks, and intricate and delicate synths. You can see why Loco Dice is a big fan of Adapter with this one. The ethereal breakdown will certainly give that all important dance-floor respite, before proceedings kick back twice as hard.
Boomshake is a rasping, percussive, tech-house weapon that is sure to be utilized throughout the coming months. Its long arching build ups give way to highly functional plateaus that will be well received by plarty goers.
Knockout is a jacky, staccato, hypnotic track that will allow DJs to take things a little left of center when the time is right.
Check it Out is a chunky bass laden cut. The vocal sample is complement by pin point drum loops that entice the listener deeper and the track develops.
