Hot on the heels of the recent Yan Stricker single, Swiss label !Organism return with their latest signing Mylo Salte. Salte has been performing live sets at festivals and clubs across Europe for the past 6 years and more recently has been producing and releasing records for labels such as Tracer, Alchemy & Plastik FM. His bass heavy take on minimal techno and tech fuelled house have gained him quite a following, and brought him to the attention of the excellent !Organism.
His debut single for the label kicks off with the original version of Soak, a superbly shuffling slice of glitchy minimal techno with a dark and menacing edge. Layers of percussion provide the base for broody stabs and intense synth riffs that ride the track from beginning to end, simply produced and highly effective.
Next up we have label boss Yan Stricker at the remix controls, delivering a version of Soak that strips away some of the darker elements, jacks up the drums and provides a superb atmospheric alternative. This is peak time techno that is certain to find favour wherever it is dropped!
Second of the original tracks comes in the form of Tease, a tense techno workout with tight distorted loops, pitched vocal edits and a tough heads down vibe. The heavily reverbed stabs in the latter section add a spacey warehouse feel whilst the main riffs keep the intensity levels turned right up, great stuff.
Finally we have the excellent Alexi Delano, who takes time out from his production work with Drumcode, Plus8 and H Productions to rework Tease into a rolling slice of underground techno. Driven by an unyielding arpeggiated bassline this mix is another surefire winner.
Another super solid release from a label that everyone should be keeping an eye on.
