Label : Plattenbank Records
Release : Out now
Genre : Techno
Belarus based musician and cutting edge DJ/Producer Dmitry Molosh rears his head out in emphatic fashion with his latest release coming out on Plattenbank Records tiled – The Path.
Molosh’s productions have been on my watch list for several months now, and he does nothing wrong with this latest two tracker, the first of which – The Path is hip and hot. The slow burning insides of this chugging gem is tough, combined with snappy claps and stabbing keys that are backed up with almost droning, intense beats, should stand tall and encapsulate any dance floor. Gritty bass accompanies subtle electronics and some kind of surreal warm as toast pads join in all the hustle and bustle sounding fresh in its entire crisp, wide reaching glory.
The second offering – Black Dust, has arrangements of crafty pings and tings and shuddering bass against a sullen back ground of iridescent grimy layered synths and squalling interiors. A bigger, mature bass line thunders the back half of the track to the lofty heights of that great big floor filler you weren’t expecting. This is that clattering bottomless pit of production that dancers can very well get lost in, never to get back down.
A lone remix see’s German producer/ DJ Marc Poppcke get his hands on the former tune and he makes short work out of things, as he treats The Path, in to sounding like a coiled dubby serpent all around. This is a steely, controlled stunner of a rework with attention given to tentative fractured electronics sitting in the middle of sweaty clattering percussives and bent down bass.
