Phoise 05:27


snippets: bit.ly/3NHaOPV

New work from SoHaSo head honcho Nuno dos Santos. He made Traces when the world was still a silent place and most sound systems stood idle. As did the phone that normally brought the Utrecht-based DJ & producer new bookings.

Three routes run through the Traces EP, with lines from Detroit, London and Berlin crossing in the red-hot middle. Phoise is butter smooth techno that is both indebted to Juan Atkins' machine funk as to European producers such as Dave Angel and Sterac.

On Frontside Disaster, the shutters close to keep out the sunlight, while razor-sharp snares bring the situation to a head. And if not, Deniro does. The Hague-based DJ and producer transforms Frontline Disaster into a peak time techno monster that undoubtedly ends up in the record boxes of DJs like Rødhåd and Marcel Dettmann.

The title Frontline Disaster comes from skateboarding, says Dos Santos. "It's a trick on a ramp. I recently heard skaters talk about that special moment when everything falls into place and you are in this flow," he says. "I felt that flow while I was making this track."
