Our Thursday selection: UMEK – Predator EP (1605, 1605247)
UMEK is currently dominating the techno charts with all his 2020 releases on 1605 making their way to the No.1 spot on Beatport.
Continuing to show his prowess for making explosive tracks that command respect on the dance floor, his new two track release the Predator EP is another hands in the air masterpiece.
1605 has become the main outlet for UMEK’s music, but along with his own label he has also featured on many other high-flying imprints such as Suara, Filth On Acid and Intec.
The title track “Predator” is a high-paced monster that prowls the dance floor looking for fresh meat. With a throbbing bass line and stabbing lead synth, it builds towards the suspense of the main breakdown before unleashing the full force of its ferocity.
“Whiff Punishing” is the second cut, and it’s equally punishing with urgent rhythms and a frantic energy that subsides only for the epic breakdown. All about the spine-tingling bassline, this track has the perfect blend of ingredients for a peak time anthem.
