Sincopat is back with a solid new project that offers up a complimentary foursome of tech-house tracks with flavors ranging from emotional and melodic to dark and chuggin’ on the label’s Vomvo 02 (part 3) EP.
Darlyn Vlys & Hear ThuG’s “Atoms of Love” contemporizes that ’90s progressive house vibe — complete with layered breakdown — on this winning lead-off track. AFFKT & Mike Ravelli’s “Don’t Hold Back” continues the retro interpretation with a more tech-driven attack, fat kicks and pulsing layers that will crush a sweaty peak time dance floor in the basement of any industrial warehouse. “Confession” by ARTBAT & Thomas Gandey is a dark and heavy job that builds around simple yet surprisingly effective vocals. The package closes with Habischman’s “Groove Division.” It’s a slow build that one might even say is relatively uneventful, but its hypnotic makes the track work.
Great tracks overall, and Sincopat’s best release in a long time.
