When in comes to hard as nails tribal techno, there’s not many better outfits than Jumpstereo owners Anti-Slam & W.E.A.P.O.N. on fairly new label sub:Merged. Years of experience and attention to detail have resulted in crisp, measured productions with a killer punch and bags of energy, and thats whats on offer here : Peak Time Techno
These tracks are the sort of secret weapon (no pun intended), that the likes of Adam Beyer, Marco Bailey and Carl Cox keep in reserve for when the party just needs that reassuring 4/4 kick up the bum. And these two deliver in spades!
The A side track, called Traction, grooves with an well made tom hook driving things along to the break, where a drop in pressure and a vocal refrain keeps interest high. As the drums return you can imagine the room simultaneously bouncing along to the groove. A great transitioning track from high energy. Over on the B side, Re-Traction ups the ante with bigger, industrial drums and a darker feel. This one is a beast and on a big system, the bottom end will probably make you lose your dinner!!
