An undoubtedly first-rate release from the Vatos Locos imprint sees Hector and David Gtronic’s brisk, occasionally brutal rhythms ignite all the senses and then some. First is the excellent: Holding On which sequences an intense roll of drums together with hot punctuating bass hits, while neatly contrasted by warmer moods created by the wash of emotive pads. A never less than excitable escape into the unknown as each section releases a new found release of energy. Next, the even more robust Gabacho fuses sizzling percussion and tough basslines with otherworldly effects for relentlessly, devastating results. Leaving the equally fast-paced Villa Kubu to finish you off with yet more heady atmosphere’s playing out alongside the perpetual rush of furious rhythm.
