r.hitect – Truncated EP [r.hitect]
Romanian artist r.hitect returns on his eponymous label with “Truncated EP”, the third 12” to be delivered by the rising producer in collaboration with Remus on the B-Side. The wax delivers top-quality minimal techno flavoured with complex atmospheres and melodic synth patterns. A subtle flavour of progressive is added to the sounds that engage the listener into a very captivating story as the tracks spin on the turntable.
Since his debut alongside Barac on “Masterplan EP” last year, r.hitect dropped RCT002 and headlined only a few events, keeping a veil of mystery around his true identity. His music sure stands out tho, having a futuristic touch and bringing forward delightful dancefloor-oriented rhythms. With releases on Shamandrum, Sintope Vinyl Series and Blue, Remus slowly builds a name for himself while dispatching his distinct sound. Stay tuned as more will follow in the near future for sure!
Side A opens with the title track “Truncated”, a rolling deep and melodic composition that flows with a steady-paced rhythm while the texturing is infused with warm notes and build-ups. This feeling is explored in-depth on the next cut titled “Awaken”, a solid dancefloor shaker that brings forward intricate arrangements and synth sequences.
On Side-B, we find the collaborative track “Hoax” which reveals an immersive, psychedelic-like experience as the layers morph into a complex journey imbued with an overflow of emotions and carefully-crafted modulations. The EP will be available in a limited number of copies, so be sure not to miss out on this, as there will be no repress!
