Artist: Russell
Title: Exostent EP
Label: Floppy Disc
Release Date: 23rd August 2019
Genre: Tech House / Techno

We bring you the debut release from Russell’s brand new Floppy Disc imprint. Featuring two Melodic numbers from the man himself, written while travelling around the world, inspired by the energy of some of the worlds best clubs and intended to be consumed on and off the dancefloor.

First up is ‘Exostent’, this driving number delivers with a solid 16th bassline backed by dazzling synth rhythms and dreamy female vocals that almost lull you into a false sense of relaxation. What follows is a breakdown of epic scale, dominated by a fast attack lead that pierces the speaker system and progresses into a sonic build that fills the frequency range to its fullest, topped off by a drop that truly delivers a punch.

Next up is ‘Lilzer’, this nod to the past takes you on a melodic journey with an immense feel-good factor. Dominated by a positive vocal message of love and joy, its all wrapped up in a nice acidy, melodic techno bow. In many ways, this is a perfect transition track for any set, progressive and emotive with a great breakdown and a drop that pays off in spades.
