Underground Berlin duo TRU. return to Loot Recordings with a package of deep, analog-driven techno that includes remixes by Sascha Dive and Mira & Christopher Schwarzwalder.
TRU.’s debut release ‘Knick / Skalar’ on Loot Recordings received widespread support from big hitters like Laurent Garnier, Kevin Sanderson and Claude Von Stroke to name a few. They are back with a release that again confirms they’re a name to pay attention to.
The EP kicks off with ‘Porphyr’, an analog pounding analog track that grooves alone with a massive kick and grinding synths that create tension and haunting moments. An eerie, slow burning ambient ‘Intro Version’ is also included and is the perfect atmospheric track to open or close any set with real drama.
Remixing ‘Porphyr’ is Frankfurt’s Sascha Dive, a quality purveyor of the deep on labels such as Cocoon Recordings, King Street and his own Deep Vibes. His less-is-more version is a hypnotic and deep tech house production that carries you away for seven-plus minutes of endless grooves and gentle synth melodies.
The next original is ‘Trachyt’, a powerhouse that’s dominated by writhing synths and the punch of an 808 with claps, menacing synths and pattering toms all building to a wild peak before the breakdown allows the dance floor to catch its breath. It then kicks back in with a vengeance and will take any crowd to a higher energy peak.
Berlin’s Mira & Christopher Schwarzwalder remix offers their own deep groove of perfectly programmed synths, effects and warm keys, with the result being something special for the late night moments of a Berlin club or the morning sunrise of Burning Man.
