Chontane delivers six dynamic techno cuts via his ‘Sycamore’ EP on Mutual Rytm.
A firm fixture of the VOLTAGE roster and a rising name originating from Ukraine making an impact, Berlin-based DJ and producer Chontane is quickly finding his feet following a string of EPs via ARTS, Lobster Theremin and Rekids Special Projects. Already playing key clubs at the age of just 18, blurring the lines between techno, breaks and
electro with his growing trademark sound, his performances across Berlin and beyond have captured the attention of many as he showcases his up-front and powerful sound. Next, he heads to SHDW & Obscure Shape’s Mutual Rytm imprint for the first time as he reveals his six-track ‘Sycamore’ EP.
Lead cut ‘Preserved’ is a rugged yet soulful opener, settling into a rolling groove guided by crisp hats and sharp stabs, while ‘Arakis’ propels into more eerie and menacing spheres as waling vocals emerge and disappear into the track’s relentless dynamic. Opening the B-side, ‘Sitka’ fuses jacking drums with playful flute interludes for a
production set to get dancefloors moving, while ‘Laboe’ keeps things fiery as a peppy track which launches into fiesta mode. Closing the flip side, B3 ‘After Images’ reveals the most emotive production on the package, balancing the hard-hitting kicks with soulful vocals and hazy melodies for a classy slice of techno.
Once again, digital purchasers are treated to an exclusive bonus with ‘In Roots’ raising the temperature and jumping right back into the action to serve up another energising anthem from a label and artist on the rise.
