Umek Puts Together Tuff 4 Track Techno EP Feat Mark Reeve Collaboration - LARGE !!

The release’s opening track 'Vibrancy' is the clearest example of UMEK’s signature combination of a tougher techno sound with more emotive, melodic elements, this time with a pounding kick-drum making way for a groove-laden breakdown halfway through.

'Message' is the perfect combination of Mark’s streamlined style and UMEK’s compelling melody. Opening with a thundering kick drum and dramatic vocals, the high-paced groove builds towards the introduction of the lead synth and its twisted euphoria. Hard hitting and full of character, this is a high calibre release that showcases two of techno’s most influential producers.

UMEK’s track 'Distinct Operator' follows his winning formula blending a thundering kick drum with breath-taking synth lines. Adding operatic vocals in the breakdown, this unique cut is perhaps the first-time opera and techno have been merged with such stunning and emotional results.

'Cybernetic Implant' closes the release with its ominous bass pads that underpin a euphoric melody to create a compelling dark and light contrast. Tough percussion and a hard-hitting kick drum provide the ridged foundation that’s tried and tested to cause frenzied excitement on the dance floor.
