Artist: Jon Rundell
Title: Distorted EP
Release date: 08/12/2014
Jon Rundell has been at it for a while now, and it’s really good to see that he’s not burnt out nor is he going anywhere. His latest “Distorted EP” release on Carl Cox’s imprint Intec happens to be one of those interesting Techno offerings, that one, which doesn’t really go anywhere yet has mass appeal in it’s packaging.
The first of which “Distorted View” at first might give you light lashings of a steady bass line, but then things take a turn for the quirky as a resonant, shiny synth joins the proceedings and a proper sound collage starts to take shape, of careening pace, a layered kooky riff snakes around in frenetic style, along-side. Overall there’s a respectable amount of slam replete with a spacey disco feel. One can march and march.
Things get interesting with “My Obsession”, which stay’s truer to the style and has an exciting feel and fuss to it. One finds a gulping acidic bassline and a fearless front. Curated macho vocals accompany the dislocated, jacking body. Again, as with the first there’s a frantic pace thrown in for brainless booty shaking, that fits in, at a nu-rave outing.
This is a recommended must have for any Techno aficionado
