Press Info:
Rising Techno star Nørbak makes a welcome return to Soma with his second release the Struggle In Vain EP. The prolific young Portuguese producer has had an incredible year so far in terms of releases and this 2nd release with Soma marks a decided upturn in showcasing his well crafted and defined sound. Adding to the EP’s already heavy sound is Spanish producer Kwartz who delivers an epic remix in his own inimitable style.

Subtlty and hypnotism are trademarks of Nørbak’s sound and opener These Hurrying Years is a perfect example of him using both of these to work in tension throughout. Title track Struggle In Vain leans on driving and direct elements that deliver on pure intensity. It Will Not Consume Us works in broken beat rhythms allowing Nørbak to bring a sense of groove whilst more atmospheric elements evolve throughout. The Kwartz remix of It Will Not Consume Us closes out the EP with great depth as layer upon layer unfolds, utilising the original’s atmospheres and melodic tones, creating a whole new entity.
