Rising Romanian producer RQZ is back on Sous-Vide Records following his previous remix of "First Floor" from SVR001. This time the Mioritmic resident presents four snappy minimal offerings.
"Temple Drum" is our soup du jour, the tenacious kick dominates the palate while RQZ lightly seasons the offering with sprinkles of syncopated percussive elements. A dollop of hypnotic vocal sample is dropped on top to round out the flavours.
"Black Velvet" arrives with sharply trimmed edges creating a lean cut with smooth textures and sounds that tease the hidden sweet and sour notes within.
"Controller" serves up a heavy bass line that commands attention. The drums act as a pairing, providing a robust flavour without overpowering it. Minimal beeps, blips and bloops dot the presentation as a colourful garnish, brining the song to life before our ears.
"Prototype" is a teaser full of cheeky groove, a savoury but subtle melody, and only a hint of acid as an aftertaste. SVR002 brings you to the table of RQZ where he delivers his brand of minimal rhythms for the dance floor.
