French imprint A-TRACTION Records returns with a new EP from Marst late June, featuring two original compositions and one remix from Moteka.
Marst has been releasing music since 2012 via the likes of Kevin Saunderson's KMS Records, John Digweed's Bedrock and French Techno imprint A-TRACTION Records. Here we see Marst return to the latter with an exciting new project further showcasing his melodious, deep techno style which has seen heavy support from French electronic music pioneer Laurent Garnier since his humble beginnings.
Up first is title track 'Nanga' which sees Marst blend square wave arpeggios and an amalgamation of delayed staccato synth stabs with weighty rhythms and sporadic organic percussive rolls. The 'Vocal Mix' of 'Future' follows and embraces a deeper aesthetic via elongated sub drones, tuttering bass hits and snaking resonant lead hook, whilst psychedelic vocal murmurs further fuel its heady vibe.
Fellow Frenchman Moteka (Flash Recordings / Children Of Tomorrow) then turns in his first interpretation next with 'Remix 21' taking a more robust approach with pounding drums, murky atmospheric sweeps and vacillating synth chimes which ebb and flow throughout the groove. This year, A-TRACTION Records celebrate their 15th birthday... Let's celebrate with them !!
