UMEK drops a thumping new techno release in collaboration with Cosmic Boys and Teenage Mutants.
UMEK continues to flex as a modern-day king of techno with a new EP that further solidifies his position as an ambassador for the genre.
The latest release on UMEK’s own label 1605 is another hard-hitting dance floor smasher that will no doubt be destined for the top of sales charts if his last couple of releases are anything to go off.
This time UMEK has teamed up with French duo Cosmic Boys and German pairing Teenage Mutants, collaborating on one track with each of them to form a total of two tracks on the EP titled ‘Evolution / Feels Like A Tunnel’.
‘Evolution’ is the collaboration with Cosmic Boys that has some subtle similarities to the Charlotte de Witte anthem “Closer”, with its enticing vocal phrases layered with hard percussion. The synths lift the tension leading to an immense drop after the main breakdown, which sets it apart from the crowd.
‘Feels Like A Tunnel’ is the track made by UMEK and the Teenage Mutants, and it’s nicely summarised by its title, as the synths ping around the track like an echo bouncing down the length of a dark tunnel. Stabbing rhythms and ripping bass sounds add to the dark tension that give the track it’s compelling energy.
Overall, another two fantastic examples of why UMEK is currently dominating the techno sales charts, but not to forget that Cosmic Boys and Teenage Mutants are equally successful, and their fresh talent combined with UMEK’s veteran experience is always going to be a winning combination.
