Wieder um die Säule by Manrish
Techno and Rave wreckers
New EP from the Spanish maker show marked improvements on his earlier tracks (with a single release every year since 2018's debut on 2RB Records, it's a been an even evolution!). Slowly chipping away at the tried-and-trusted Techno traits that have shaped his way, the trio of tracks that comprise Wieder um die Säule (translates as "Around the Pillar Again") carry a greater sense of stealth. It may be the razor sharp production – check the perfect thudding kick that drops early (1:37) on the title track or the rousing spirit of Back's subtle vocal snippet working in perfect tandem with the Rave stabs – but it's more likely the young producer's developing knack for balancing addictive melodic tension with a rip-roaring rhythm.
