Over the last few years, Denis Horvat has a launched slow but steady campaign towards greatness. After clocking up releases on AEON, Noir Music, Upon You, Get Physical, Kling Klong and Souvenir, the Danish producer is now getting his just desserts, after years of meticulously curating and creating stellar music.
It’s still early in 2015 and he has already begun to turn serious heads, returning to Alex Niggemann’s AEON imprint for another smashing EP, this time with the superb three-tracker ‘Minor’.
Here we have a hat trick of all encompassing cuts, and although bursting with the oomph you need for a heads down, hands up main room stomp, these tracks offer you more than just a 4’4 beat and a soundtrack to your rave, thanks to the skill and careful attention Horvat has put into each one.
Captivating from the off, Minor is a melancholic yet rapid composition of layered synth chords and percussion. As your heart starts to race, the energy continues to build with the track ‘DIY’, complete with driving bassline, reverb and effective distortion.
Rounding off on a high, ‘Cedevita’ brings the pulse back up again with another meticulously programmed latticework of drums, bass, and unadulterated dance floor decadence, with that added ambience of intrigue that goes hand in hand with Horvat’s productions.
Through this solid EP, the producer continues to create dense, barnstorming techno beats complete with that extra signature darkness.
