KnotenMusic ends the year on a high with two new singles from label mastermind R.EK that once again offer mesmeric techno moods and grooves.
Knoten combines music, visual arts and innovative events that establish new links between audience and artist. Swiss boss R.EK is a live techno specialist with an expansive and cinematic sound that is filled with melodic emotion. He is resident DJ at the prestigious Hive Club in Zurich and tears down the walls of convention with his music.
Moving opener ‘Krills’ is an atmospheric progressive techno track with building synths and sweeping chords that take you to the skies. It’s filled with clever effects and deft designs that bring the groove to life and ensure crowds will be utterly lost in its majesty.
The excellent and darker ‘Waiting’ is just as accomplished: here the bass and synths are more shadowy and late-night, with a sense of tension in the drums and mystery in the whispered male vocals that drift in from above. Slow-burning but effective, it’s another tasteful effort from R.EK.
