The artist previously contributed a pair of cuts to the A-Sides series in recent years with 'Sonic Therapy' and Drum Control', while also playing the Drumcode stage at Tomorrowland in 2019. Elsewhere he's dropped heat on Truesoul, led by the crisp groover 'Manipulate'. His ascension to Drumcode for his first full-fledged solo EP release is richly deserved.
As with so many during the past year, Tapia's taken his studio work in colourful and interesting directions. 'The Future of Mankind' is a multi-faceted beast. The title track is a straight-up weapon, driven by an ascendent riff that's energetic and hopeful in equal doses. 'Song of Sirens' sees ambient pads and rolling percussion combine for a quality cut every DJ needs. 'Screwdriver' does what it promises on the tin; guttural and textured, it's a necessary transitional tool for every techno set. 'Hold On' is the kind of emotion charged dance music that'll make us go collectively weak at the knees when raving returns. We're already excited to hear it rinsed at Drumcode Festival in Malta this September, when Tapia joins the party.
