Also a popular DJ who regularly flies between continents to headline some of the world’s best clubs, this release is trademark of Matt Sassari’s diverse sound that incorporates tough percussion with rolling grooves and intense atmosphere.
“Rock Trick” opens the EP with a thundering kick drum and clattering atmospheric percussion, which sound like the inner workings of a powerful machine. Full of torque and an abundance of horsepower, this tracks full throttle groove is enough to rock the foundations of any Techno club.
Second is the dark atmosphere and growing tension of “Brigade” that packs in rubbery textures and spooky FX, which is not for the feint hearted. Building with snare rolls and unnerving vocal bursts, each bass drop grows with impact and the dancefloor intensity increases.
