VA – Dilated 007 [Dilated Records]
What looks like a massive lineup for yet another legendary night in the Romanian underground turned out into an amazing VA for the Dilated Records imprint.
Spanned over 2 records and featuring Rhadoo (hidden behind the Nea Marin moniker), Priku, Livio & Roby, Negru and Narcis, this release is basically a blueprint for how Romania’s house & techno underground sounds like nowadays.
Sau Stai Asa’ smartly filtered chopped kicks (pun intended!), the dark industrialized techno atmosphere from Sambete, the neverending melodic loops with a retro-ish feel, imagined by Livio & Roby for SW5 (maybe dusted off from their huge collection of forgotten tracks) or Priku’s synchopathic piano in Joseph, perfect to create tension and suspense on the dancefloor make a tough call to choose our favourite track.
You don’t have to take our word for it so check out the audio samples below.
VA – Dilated 007 is still available in Misbits Record Shop stock here.
