Coming straight out of Barcelona, DJ and producer Aitor Ronda brings us “The Message” EP, his thundering new E.P. on Pig&Dan‘s label Elevate. Containing four absolute bangers, a highly recommended party-starting package!
The first port of call is “The Message” with its devastatingly punchy kick drums raining down on a dimly lit dance floor saturating the crowd in mercury thick metallic synth patterns. Whatever it is, Aitor distills his tune to the core raw elements needed to get you moving and feeling good. Next up is “Genesis”, yet another groover, which continues in the dark-soaked style that permeates the entire E.P. This time perhaps, injected with some more glitter synthetic sounds and atmospheres. On “Quit Procuo” the beats are steady and the moods are bright, the kind of track that is easy to mix and to infuse life into the most dazed after-hours dance floors. The Spanish artist is definitively delivering a hefty dose of jackin´techno know-how.
Last but certainly not least comes “CO2” to close out a well-rounded collection. A pulsating but still airy techno beat which starts progressing and building up into a driving, hypnotic track, thanks in part to mysterious voice samples. As hypnotic for your feet as you want.
This is definitely a pack of four original cuts that sweep along the darker spectrums of techno while emphasising a delicate but powerful style of production. Once again Ronda delivers meticulous layering and masterful rhythm section.
