Colombias Andres Gil is the founder of Refluxed Records and has released plenty of serious techno sounds on labels like Great Stuff, Yellow Recordings and Dropkick Records. Here he teams up with Marck D aka Charlie Escobar, who is a regular on the Refluxed label.
Their first single, No Escape is a fulsome bit of loop techno with plenty of grainy synths, waves of white noise and barrelling kick drums that cannot fail to sweep you up. A chilly iciness comes from the delicate hi hat ringlets and squelchy sounds get churned up in the mix, as will you too.
Next offering Behind the Light is more stripped back and shadowy, Initially its just a monstrous kick drum setting the tone before train track percussive clatters and rushing pads join the mix and bring with them an even greater sense of urgency. Its stripped back but hugely emotive music, something that in itself is not an easy trick to pull off, especially as effectively as this.
Boss man Yan Stricker, responsible for making this label into the techno force that it is, turns in a much more undulating remix. The mood here is one of industrialism, with metallic sounds and slapping kick drums surging through desolate landscapes.
!Organism is about no nonsense techno and once again here Yan Stricker has A&Red another essential studio partnership for his leading label.
