London based Underlord is a Techno producer who is already popular with taste making DJ’s including Nicole Moudaber, Joseph Capriati, Pig & Dan and Maceo Plex.
His music is regularly championed by Carl Cox who loved his track “King Size” so much that he selected it for his Space Ibiza 2016 compilation mix, and he has even been supported by the Godfather of Techno Juan Atkins.
Track one titled “Lemon Sorbet” is all about the bass flutter, which adds a skip to the groove and gives the track forward momentum. Murky textures washed in delay skate over percussion, whilst the simple yet captivating melody keep you hooked.
Second is “Underground” which combines bass stabs with rising pads and held chords that build with tension. Uplifting and dramatic, the progressive structure lead by looped percussion gives this Techno focused track an epic feel as it unfolds and blossoms.
"Block" is the third track on the EP and its rolling groove and looped pads compliment the booming lead sound that’s washed in reverb. Using a filter, the parts are slowly removed, stripping the track down to its core before the main drop. The filter opens allowing the track to spring back to life with an explosion of energy.
Finishing the release are the chiming chords of “When” that with a sense of euphoria, has dream like aesthetics. Up-tempo with fast flowing percussion, the track paints a picturesque sunrise where light bursts through the cracks of an industrial landscape and shows that Techno doesn’t always have to be dark.
