DescriptionThe 27th release on microCastle sees the debut of Irish techno producer Cristior to the label. Cristior is fast establishing himself as a leading force in electronic music carving out a niche with his unique take on modern techno music consisting of sophisticated grooves layered with futuristic melodies. He has held a residency now for over 3 years at Irelands biggest and longest running nightclub, Lush in Portrush! Cristior's first EP for microCastle is entitled 'Deshoda' and it comes with two brand new original productions and remixes from: Petar Dundov and Guy J. The title cut 'Deshoda' leads the EP of with piercing electronics and a punishing acidic groove that's rooted with a warm chord changing wall of sub bass. Fluttering melodic lines and driving drums build momentous energy towards the drop. Here a funky new lead with timeless techno sensibilities and a long tension filled build results in a massive crescendo that should provide an amazing dance floor reaction. Surely one of Cristior's best and genre bending productions to date. The lone remix of 'Deshoda' comes from Petar Dundov who is returning to microCastle for his second appearance following his remix of Spooky 'Polymorph' from October of 2011. Petar makes intelligent electronic music that breaks boundaries, moves feet and twists minds. He is without a doubt one of the most inspiring, original and daring producers in electronica, and with the likes of Sven Vath, Laurent Garnier, Hernan Cattaeno and Guy J singing his praises it would be hard to disagree. For his 'Deshoda' interpretation Petar has delivered another poignant, slow building techno remix that comes with haunting melodies, subtle atmospheric accents and a relentless acid groove that's perfect for the dance floor. The second original on the package 'Crystals' (a tune we first heard Paul from Psycatron playing on his BBC Radio One show) comes with a tough techno groove and a unique flair with an undeniable dance floor energy. The main melodic theme has to be one of the coolest leads we've heard all year. A charming blend of cascading piano keys that have been processed to perfection with a shimmering, glassy sheen and stunning hypnotic flow. The waves of mesmerising melodic energy build through two sections of the composition with the later being a monumental breakdown that should light up even the most discerning dance floors. The lone remix of 'Crystals' is provided by Guy J who is returning to microCastle for his second appearance following his remix of 16 Bit Lolitas 'Personal Space' from July of 2011. Guy has been having another incredible year with the launch of his Lost & Found imprint and remixes of the prog house classics Circulation 'Turquoise', Gill Norris 'Forme' and Andy Ling's 'Fixation'. Guy has completely overhauled 'Crystals' and presented several new melodic themes with some clever sequences of warm, well textured tones and waves of dance floor shaking bass stabs. Certainly one of Guy's most unique compositions this year and with support already in from Hernan Cattaneo you know it's one not to be missed!
