Next up on Mark Knight’s impressive label, Toolroom Trax is a rising star of Techno, Ramiro Lopez. With releases on Intec, Octopus and Suara you know what standard to expect!
The EP’s opening track is “Get It Easy” and gets things off to a thunderous start! This really is a track that is filled with groove and makes use of some clever vocal manipulation. The track has many little peaks that help to keep things on the up. The main drop is superb and I can imagine this causing some serious dance floor devastation!!! This is certainly a track I can imagine the likes of Gary Beck and Harvey McKay hammering over the coming weeks. This really is a dance floor pounder!!!
Next up on the release is “Freedom Of Speech” which begins life a little more subtle than the head shaking opener. The track is no where near as heavy but don’t get me wrong, this is a great techno number. Some well used effects and a nice eerie synth line create a great techno head nodder. The vocal snippets used help to keep that funky groove bouncing along and this is certainly a track that will please a lot of DJs out there. The main drop is dark and moody and will sound incredible on those dark grubby dance floors.
The package as a whole is very nice and will definitely appeal to those DJs that love a techno track with a good solid groove and elements of funk. Ramiro Lopez is a producer that is just getting better and better and I can’t see him slowing any time soon with his impressive productions.
