REVIEW / DESCRIPTION
Vivus Records returns with the third instalment of the vinyl-only series VRV. With the previous release being supported by the likes of Raresh or Vincentiulian, you can expect another top-notch musical journey from two promising young talents like Silat Beksi and Daniel Broesecke.
Having been around the music scene since 2003, it was in 2013 that things really started to pick up for Silat Beksi. The Ukranian has releases at labels such as moral Fiber, Sakadat, Body Parts or Mulen and his style of uncrompomising techno blended with some sweet textures has gained him many fans on dancefloors worldwide.
Daniel Broesecke comes from the deep south of Germany and is always in search of the sounds of the underground. His catalogue includes releases at Deep Tech, Baile Musik and Lowroon Recordings and you can expect some smooth and playful techno vibes from the German.
VRV03 gets us in an atmospheric groove right from the beginning. There is a particular sense of serenity as the first track, Shades, starts playing. Once the first two minutes are gone, though, things start to get serious and the smooth bassline blends with a lovely acid touch to give an overall dreamy vibe.
As far as Taboo is concerned, things couldn't be more different. An imposing bassline greets us from the start and you can feel that Silat and Daniel have dropped the more gentle approach from Shades and opted for a powerful techno track. An intriguing range of peculiar sounds go hand in hand with the driving bass to make your feet move instantly.
