Title: Xelak EP
Label: Vector Space Recordings
Release date: 7th August 2020
Genre: Melodic Techno / Progressive House
The second release on Chris Salt’s Vector Space Recordings imprint is from none other than Pako & Frederik. Hailing from The Hague, the Dutch legends’ huge new ‘Xelak EP’ has been picking up serious DJ support from the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, Dubfire, Nick Muir, Issac, Kiz Pattison, Max Graham and Anthony Pappa.
The lead track, ‘Xelak’, keeps building and building – with tough percussion and some seriously twisted hypnotic layers, this track is guaranteed to tear the roof off. The outboard production gear really takes the sub-bass to the next level.
‘Re-Rendered’ is a deeper, atmospheric house track. Having already been championed by Hernan Cattaneo on his Resident radio show, this is a future classic. Finally, ‘Grind On’, really lives up to its name – a tough, grinding, melodic techno monster with a few vocal hits and a sting in its tail, this track brings serious sub-bass energy to the dancefloor.
Early support from Hernan Cattaneo, Dubfire, Nick Muir, Max Graham, Richie Hawtin, and Anthony Pappa.
