Washington Techno maestro J Swink teams with NYC based producer Charles D for his debut release on underground dance music imprint Dense Audio.
The A Side beckons with a thick and booming kick drum taking precedent whilst the softer percussive elements flutter around the sides building the atmospheric and industrial layers. Spacious and commanding in depth, the track roles on relentlessly with horn blasts forming the centrepiece of the track, hedonistic synth stabs and iconic riding hats creating simple yet effective sonic synergy. ‘Higher Power’ is a big room, peak player for those heaviest of dance floor moments.
The B-Sideopens with side changed dominance, alien like elements and War Of The World-esque gritty synths provide the bedrock of drama for this second cut. Enter the ‘trancey’ stabs and echoey vocal stabs that slice through the beat intermittently, with a break down opening up the sonic sphere in the simplest of ways in the mid section.
Just the 2 tracks needed on this occasion to round off a supreme debut release for J Swink & Charles D on Maksim Dark’s Dense Audio.
