Flug – Move Around EP [Rekids Special Projects, RSPX34]
Argentinian DJ/producer Flug returns to Radio Slaves’ Rekids Special Projects with ‘Move Around EP’ this November.
Following a previous outing on Rekids Special Projects with ‘Austral Frames’, as well as releases on Nina Kraviz’s Trip, UNCAGE, and Suara, the Existentia boss returns to Radio Slave’s techno-focussed imprint with four hard-hitting tracks across ‘Move Around EP’.
Lead track ‘Move Around’ bursts with character as energetic and crunchy drum work, booming low end, and tripped out vocal chops combine for a heavy-duty warehouse smasher. ‘Black Out’ sees the producer opt for a comparatively restrained approach, focussing on a handful of razor-sharp and deeply effective elements for a rattling, groove led techno jam.
‘Alloy Steel’ conjures up textured atmospherics and dense FX as tumbling kicks, metallic stabs, and crisp hats punch through the mix, before ‘Sinergy’ winds the energy down with doses of hypnotic synthesis and syncopated kick patterns, bringing the release to a woozy close.
