Just under a year after their last big impression on Rekids, Private Press are
back with four more of their brilliant big room techno cuts.
This Polish pair hail from Warsaw and are focused on producing high energy and
dubbed out techno. Already this year they have released on the Ziema label and
had a strong 2018 two EPs on the highly regarded Indigo Area. Their powerful
sound is a perfect fit with the no frills Rekids label and these four tracks all do
plenty of damage.
Opener ‘Traces to Nowhere’ is an impossibly bristling track with razor sharp synth
stabs and jostling drums that are redolent of the masterful Shed. Part old school,
part a vision of the future, it is impeccably produced.
‘Paper Clip’ is a haunting, high speed dub techno trip with eerie chords and sound
design that keep you on edge, and ‘Wet Moon’ is a broken beat masterclass with
sirens, tense breakdowns and icy hi hat ringlets that is archetypal club weaponry.
Last but not least, the warm, atmospheric and unrelenting banger that is ‘The
Struggle’ sweeps you up and carries you away on a classy techno vibe and rolling
drums that you could listen to for days.
This is a devastating EP of high impact, high quality techno.
