Listen to the Sound of Deep & Solemn Techno
We recently came across this new EP from Barcelona-based techno producer Degray which features two exquisitely deep and solemn techno tracks which elevate the genre of dark techno through the elegant use of ambient elements, mournful tones, and melodic motifs.
In the opening track ‘Source Code’ the opening serenity is short-lived as speaker shaking kicks soon join the dance. Mainframe rolls out in a slightly more dystopian fashion with melancholic keys and a grooving bass held together by looming layers of ambiance. Melodies rise, only to disappear again into the background and tension and drama are perfectly distilled.
