Abandoned In Destiny
Ballad Of Fallen Angels
(Henning Baer Remix)
After setting the tone with two initial releases by Peryl & Ike Dusk, Codec 992 returns with a straight five tracker by Buried Secrets on their third release called „Abandoned In Destiny“.
Under a different alias, the artist behind Buried Secrets should already be a familiar figure to many techno fans. For the Buried Secrets project, he made the conscious decision to keep things anonymous and let the music speak for itself – And with the likes of Dax J among early supporters, it seems his music speaks very clearly. On “Abandoned in Destiny”, Buried Secrets unearths previously dismissed musical influences, drawing inspiration from the tough sounds of techstep drum & bass.
The five track EP relentlessly pushes forward at a fast pace, from the highly energetic, ravy opener “Stormcloaks”, through the equally fast paced bangers “Take Control” and the titular “Abandoned in Destiny”, to the intricate drumming and trance-esque breaks of “Ballad Of Fallen Angels” – Over the course of its first four tracks, Abandoned in Destiny sounds like a well-balanced, strobe fuelled, peak time techno set.
To round things off, Henning Baer contributes his remix of “Take Control” as the fifth and final track. Baer skilfully turns the original into a broken, decidedly slower electro cut, playfully defying the listeners expectations.
