Bruce Zalcer returns to 1605 with ‘Evocation’


UMEK’s label 1605 presents the sixth in its Desiderati 4 series, which is a various artist EP featuring thumping techno tracks by Rebel Boy & Sam WOLFE, Bruce Zalcer, Lazar (IT) and Loco & Jam.

Rebel Boy & Sam WOLFE open the release with a collaborative track made in the same style they have featured on other labels including Oliver Huntemann’s Senso Sounds. Individually, Rebel Boy has featured on Frankyeffe’s Riot, and Sam WOLFE’s dropped music on Christian Smith’s Tronic. Their track “Black Veins” fuses heavy percussion with grinding stabs and hints of euphoria.

Track two is our premiere by Bruce Zalcer who is returning to 1605 after featuring on the last Desiderati 4 release. He has also featured on Spartaque’s Codex and Metodi Hristov’s Set About. His track “Evocation” is all about the epic breakdown and compelling synth lines layered with the punch of the kick drum.

Lazar (IT) is back on 1605 after featuring on the first of the Desiderati 4 EP’s, and since his last appearance he has been busy with released on the likes of Alan Fitzpatrick’s We Are The Brave to Ramon Tapia’s Say What? label. Blending vocal phrases with an ominous bassline, his track “Neuron” is a dark and sadistic slice of techno.

Closing out the release is Irish duo Loco & Jam who have received international critical acclaim for their releases on labels such as Drumcode, Terminal M and Octopus amongst many others. Taking its title from the vocal sample, “Jackmaster” revolves around the modulating tones of the arpeggio lead synth and the tension building pads.

We premiere Bruce Zalcer’s ‘Evocation’ on NUDE Techno today, check it out here and grab it here.

A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
