Rekord 61 – Polyus EP
Label: KonstruktivScore: 8/10
Rekord 61 is a producer who’s most definitely deserving of his fair share in the spotlight, and it’s no exaggeration to say that his is a talent which is worth looking out for. On his latest outing for his own label, Konstruktiv, he really brings the heat, with the Polyus EP a sort of hardened battle weapons which are sure to fire up even the most ardent and determined of floors.
Visceral sounds are very much the order of the day from the offset, with the producer guiding us in a direction that takes absolutely no prisoners thanks to a bleak mass of overdriven frequencies and a tendency for some heavyweight acid meanderings. Perc’s remix isn’t quite as hedonistic, although he guides us down the rabbit hole thanks to a humming and ubiquitous bassline as well as a frantic drum ethos. Again, it’s a perfect marriage of sounds – and precisely the reason why we loved his recent LP too. The curtain is then brought down thanks to ”Val”; another track that’s built from a filthy cloth. Corrosive and with plenty of attitude, it adds fuel to what’s an already intoxicating and relentless fire. An EP that’s barely controllable at times, it’s sure to raise the dancefloor up in no uncertain terms.
