Rodaq lands on Loot Recordings with a new offering that features remixes from Uone, Yapacc and Schlepp Geist. Rodaq grew up in Berlin and his sound takes in plenty of the city's strongest influences from the grit and rawness of Tresor and Berghain, to the decadence of Bar25. Now with Singapore as his base, he regularly serves his blend of techno and trippy tech-house to dancers all over Europe and Asia and his first EP on Insist Music apparently got props from Laurent Garnier, Riva Starr and Tim Green.
Opener 'Pollock Hill' is a deep and rolling track with sustained chords. The jumbled percussion keeps your body loose and the whole thing is designed for intimate back rooms. Australia and Balance Music's Uone takes you further and gives this a deeper, hazy vibe on his remix. His interpretation kicks things into overdrive with the addition of guitar harmonies, piano chords, operatic vocals and horn stabs that cut through the track.
Rounding out the remixes on this one is fellow Berliner Yapacc who has had releases on over 80 labels and remixed for Ricardo Villalobos. He incorporates the original synths, but amplifies it with drums, muscular percussion and a punchy, melodic bassline. The second original is 'Phormosa', a dreamy, intricate affair of synth heavy basslines, complex melodies and tension that builds.
Leipzig based Schlepp Geist delivers a remix that fires up the energy with blurring melodies, analog stabs and synths that modulate and climax throughout the track.
It’s out now.
