The track Boom by Jecin George is an upbeat future house styled piece that really has some brilliant musical elements in that are great to listen to. The track has you reaching for the volume dial to increase the energy that shifts throughout the track. I really enjoy upbeat music and this is perfect for the summer DJ sets that are upon us.

The drums are punchy and crisp which is a must in this style, there is a lovely reverberant space around the drums that really add to the atmospheric value of the track. With clever vocal and synth manipulation throughout, this track keeps you on your toes while listening, and if you haven’t started to move to this, i’m really not sure what will get you out of your seat! There are many different house and trance elements that come through the track and it is clear the Jecin George isn’t locked in to one style of music, for his productions and also for their influences.

The motif over the top of the track played on a slightly metallic marimba , is fun to listen to and happy by nature. A cool phrase that sticks in your mind and you almost want more of, even though it is well placed in the track. Overall, this is a great showcase of music production talent.

Techno of the highest order here with Thalanx and his Sub-Label Recordings EP called ‘Nahua‘. The opening track, titled ‘Desolate’ is a progressive underground techno track that takes you on a rollercoaster ride from the first arpeggiator through to the last drum hit. The melodic elements draw in the listener before the hard hitting low end and rhythmical drive transform the track in to a club worthy floor filler.

This producer has clearly spent a lot of time crafting his sound and sculpting the direction for his music to go in. There are obvious influences and nods to more atmospheric and euphoric tracks, which add to the huge amounts of energy that are buried in the track and creating the excitement when listening. I really liked this track, especially the softer musical elements and their contrast to the harsher sounds.

This is fine production skills to say the least, with crisp drums carving through the wall of synth sound and working with the effects to create a track that has a real heartbeat and sense of energy. As an opener on an EP, there is no better way to be introduced to a collection of tracks. The release is made up of three tracks, all in a dark and minimal techno style which are influenced by rich synth work and tribal percussion. Each track is individual but yet recognisable as Thalanx.
