With numerous releases already under his belt, Border One is no stranger to the scene. Yet as a young producer the quality and maturity of his output is like that of any experienced veteran. With a work ethic second to none, he has cemented himself as a favourite amongst some of the most prolific artists while still maintaining an identifiable modular-driven sound.
Title track ‘Samadhi’ is classic techno at its finest. With precise 909 drum programming, looping bleep patterns and haunting pads, it recalls the best parts of 90s techno but with its own contemporary, high definition character. ‘Nirodha’ gets things grooving with a call-and-response interaction between drums and synths. This one’s highly functional and a perfect tool for getting the room moving. ‘Narakas’ follows suit with a similarly infectious groove. Ramping up the energy even further, this track balances moments of simplicity with freneticism. Closing out the package is the synth-based thumper ‘Jodoshin’. With warm bass and undulating leads, the arrangement builds with the help of galloping drums and melodic bleeps eventually tailing off as elements patiently strip back.
