Technique end the year with the obligatory track roundup and there’s a broad spectrum of their sound to get your ears. There’s a few that ring will with me, especially the Document One offerings, which should be up for the nab ASAP. That’s just me through and there’ll be something for all, easy. So get locked on and celebrate Techniques 2015
Document One – Jazz Club
Jazz Club kicks off lightly with subtle jazz double bass work and a wooden snare before unleashing a thick wet, twisting bassline. A welcome contrast of sounds.
Drumsound & Bassline Smith – I Need Somebody
A bit piece for the duo in 2015. Wrapped up in layers and injected Drumsound & Bassline Smith energy with a sprinkling of tinkering keys and a deliciously rave reminiscent vocal.
Spectrem – Say Goodbye
A delicious little synth pattern and driving liquid percussion on this piece.
Tantrum Desire – Pump
Tantrum Desire kranks it up on cue before dropping and chopping up the breaks with a half time feel, sublimely. There’s still lashings of synth and hyped up energy and the vocal sample has me harking back to all those school discos enjoyed in guilty fashion.
Document One – Follow Me (Top Pick)
The lighter sides of the LP, Document One, yet again, brings forth a tasty sound. Clear twisting bassline wraps around the clarity of percussion.
Tantrum Desire & Matrix & Futurebound – Shadows
Sound tasty bassline play on the break from these two, streamed over by some classic noughties synth and an electronic scatter pattern, not unlike a slap bass makes for a surprisingly welcome feel to the ears.
2DB – Quaalude
This synth line and that big ripping bassline all make for good, extravagant times on the floor.
