The Republic Artists crew are back again! Label family Mr. Dello drops two original heavy hitting club tracks while Medhat & Dekkstrum and Nick Elia provide the remixes for this 4-track EP. True to the party’s main room sound, Bending Light / Atacama are fierce dark techno tracks fit for the basements of London’s Egg and Prague’s Chapeau Rouge nightclubs, where the collective have held countless parties since 2008.
Bending Light is the funkier, more trippy track of the two cuts. This mysterious tool gradually builds and would fit perfectly early on in late night, rolling sets. Atacama is the more energetic track: it pounds relentlessly, smoulders intensely and has Peak Time Bomb written all over it!
Nick Elia’s remix of Bending Light turns the original on its head by exchanging its smooth rhythms for gritty, industrial & broken synth stabs. The Medhat & Dekkstrum remix is a clever rework of Atacama, adding a vocal and extending the breakdown nicely.
This is timeless techno for seasoned ravers from one of the strongest crews in Europe around..don’t sleep on this!
