Bastardo Electrico returns with fast-rising Irish techno producer Doug Cooney stepping up to provide the latest instalment and one of the most intense releases on the label to date. The EP opens with "Pansperman", direct pulsating techno driven by the cyclic chatter of a nervous synth which builds anxious tension as mountainous kick drums roll under skipping percussion, clean hissing hats and exhilarating rides. Up next German producer Krenzlin gives us his take on "Pansperman" stripping back the elements and injecting an extra level of funk into the percussion to create a late 90's style mesmerising loop track which subtly builds and builds with the sound of ancient iron pipes and woodblocks venting pressure and driving his remix forward. The flip side opens with "Higher Self", a peak hour techno banger featuring rolling claps, fluttering phrases, and the a desiccated snare which slice above a wave of bass rumble like fin through water as the track barrels down a tunnel of fat kicks and polished leads. Closing out the EP "Parallel Reality", which combines industrial darkness with a late-night/early-morning atmosphere, pounding forward through the smoke as sweat drips off the walls.
