We kick things off with Next, a perfect intro track that sets the stage for the energy to come. The track begins with slow and heavenly synthesizers, teasing listeners for a while with fluttery melodies before dropping into one of Khainz's signature, stomping grooves. Beautiful phrases continue throughout, making Next the kind of track that makes dancers close their eyes and feel every moment. Next comes Reflect (no pun intended), a tune you may have heard in an episode of Yoshitoshi Radio, as it's been a staple of Sharam's sets for months. It picks up right where Next leaves off, with a dark, impending vibe that develops into a huge melodic techno banger. A mysterious vocal hook appears throughout the track which is sure to get stuck in your head, as anyone who's heard the track thus far is aware. Finally, it wouldn't be a Khainz release without some hard-driving techno, and Reconnect delivers on that front. The tune is impeccably produced, each drum hit and bass sound carefully sculpted in Khainz's sonic laboratory for maximum force. This one will find a happy home in the crates of DJ's who need a secret weapon for peak moments.
If these three tunes are a preview of what's to come on Fingerprint, then we're truly in for something special (and, having had the privilege of hearing it, we can assure you that's the case). Khainz continuously sets a high bar for both the quality and quantity of his productions, churning out amazing tracks like a machine. Stay tuned for the full release of the album on June 28th, we can't wait to share it with you!
