M.R.E.U.X – Night Vision (Blumoog Music, BLUG014)
Electronic innovator M.R.E.U.X cooks up more of his powerful sounds on a bold new EP that comes with a huge remix from techno royalty Mark Broom.
M.R.E.U.X. is the Blumoog label boss with a pounding and original take on techno that has made him a scene regular in his native Italy. His label is known for its inventive machine sounds, and after his Gravity EP late last year featuring a Joel Mull remix and his superb Modular Immersion backed with a remix from Ben Sims, he is now back in fierce form once more.
Different influences can be noticed on this fine three tracker. Across the two originals, M.R.E.U.X fuses techno, dub and house and dresses them with a heavy bassline and quirky electronic motifs. Excellent opener ‘Odyssey’ is nearly five minutes of pure bliss with a dub-tech feel and granular inserts that makes it even more captivating. ‘Flash’ is characterised by deep and absorbing sub bass and persistent hi-hats that are appeased by atmospheric moments halfway through that really captivate your emotions.
UK techno pioneer Mark Broom has a career and acclaimed successes which span more than 30 years. He is the Pure Plastic and Beard Man label owner and has also collaborated with, and released material on many iconic labels such as Drumcode, R&S, Blueprint, and Soma just to name a few. His superb ‘Odyssey’ remix is a more bouncy take that develops into jacking, hard hitting beats that are sure to burn down the house.
These are three characterful, well produced techno weapons that cannot fail to stand out in any set.
