We are back with another essential EP, this time from Ramiro Lopez. He serves up two killer cuts that will find favour with both DJs and dancers alike in the coming months.
Lopez is a Spanish producer who has been kicking out the jams for a decade now. He mixes up all house and tech styles and works with labels like Noir and Diynamic so is a real tastemaker.
Up first here is Whispers, a tight and infectious tech cut. Solid kicks drive it along and crisp perc add real bite to the thing. Loopy bass keeps pulling you in and industrial, spraying synths add real depth and scale as dark vocals add menace. On the flip, Monkey Talk is more stripped back and driving. Perfect for a back room or a warehouse in full flow, it is no frills and tough tech with elastic drums and evolving synths that are lively and well sculpted.
These are two tension fueled and impact making tunes that will do plenty of damage in the right hands.
