Ovum Recordings kicked off the 20th Anniversary with the stunning release from Chymera. After revelling in their melodic beauty, we take you back to the darker side of techno with the follow up EP from Steve Parker. His Ovum debut Innerstate EP topped the beatport charts and was one of the biggest techno releases of 2011. His Sugar High EP takes up the charge and delivers a diverse three selection that will rule dance floors the world over.In recent years Steve's productions have seen him become a regular in the record boxes of the world's best. Outside of his release on Ovum, his work for labels including Quartz Music, Spark , Synewave and SCI+TEC have established him as one of the most in demand DJ/Producers of his home nation or Portugal. His deep and hypnotic sound, combining groove-heavy rhythms with a minimal-tech production style, sees Steve able to move effortlessly from sultry warm basement sounds to full on vicious arena moments. His follow up three track selection for Ovum Recordings doesnt disappoint. Having been throughly road-tested by Mr Wink, the Sugar High EP provides the perfect example of Parker's talent. The title track is a moody builder that teases with tension, always teetering on the edge of boiling point. System 22 is a more straight ahead gritty and jacking techno workout that twists and turns, while always retaining the groove. Final track Konduktor returns the calm with its wonderful warm depth and grooves. Welcome back Mr. Parker!
