Egbert & Secret Cinema combine on their ‘Vortex’ EP
The 73rd release is upon us and Gem Records welcome back their label boss Secret Cinema’s latest collaborative effort with non-other than Dutch techno maestro, Egbert.
Jeroen Verheij aka Secret Cinema has consistently been regarded as one of Netherland’s, if not the world’s top techno producers and live acts. During this time he has produced some of the biggest techno anthems including Timeless Altitude, Sonar System, Mary Go Wild and two of the popular tunes on Sven Vath’s Cocoon Records – Shake Your Tech Ass & Kurzweil.
Opening things up, ‘Vortex’ takes us on a relentless four-to-the-floor twisting journey through eerie soundscapes and rave-like synth stabs. Pulling our attention in through finely tuned details and powerful subs. Next up, ‘Random 47’ takes us on a thrilling ride with multiple layers of beautifully crafted synth work and a thumping kick drum that sends an electrifying current through our senses.
Lastly, Secret Cinema calls on newcomers, Amata to take ‘Vortex’ on a deeper narrative. Focused primarily on groove and dream-like pads which float over delicate drums. Not forgetting Amata’s mean signature synth sound to tie the remix up sublimely.
