  • Release Date 2013-01-21

  • Catalog EC099D
  • Description Taras van de Voorde has been a busy boy the last months. In between re-decorating his studio with analogue equipment and remixing Bluetrain from Michel de Hey & Rauwkost, he found time to do a proper release again. Taras is somebody who does not believe in doing a weekly release. He prefers to do one release every year, and he makes sure that the release is worth the wait. Manila is a strong club track which combines his biggest tunes so far; "1998" and "The Game". Strong synths, a hip-shaking bassline and an energetic club vibe... and again he scores, three in a row! The B-side Hong Kong shows a different side from Taras, being influenced by the Rotterdam scene with artists such as Rod, Alden Tyrell, Secret Cinema... Taras shows his dark side where there are no lights needed... You only have to bring a strobe light and a lot of smoke! Hong Kong will get Taras a new group of followers as he and EC Records return to their techno roots.early support by: Raresh (Arpiar): hong kong track for me . festival touch ! raw and powerful . thanksGregor Tresher: Great release, right in time for the holiday madness!Marc Romboy: Great!
