R/Tistique – Synergy (Available Now)

Sync Forward returns to present the debut EP of Dutch DJ and Producer R/Tistique. Following up on his successful single at the last Sync Forward VA, he delivered four incredible pristine techno tracks, showcasing the talent and creativity to ensure another solid release.

The first track ‘Synergy’ starts innocently enough, with its arpeggiated synthesizer echoing in the background, but once it drops it rises to new heights, with intricate percussive grooves and a driving pulsating synth that keeps on giving.

‘Vision’ opens up with a smooth and gradual progression, that hypnotises the listener. With its multi-layered melodies and elaborated breakdown, the result is nothing short than a dreamlike techno bomb.

The third track ‘Escalation’ has a murky submerged feel in contrast, utilising a subtle rising synth and squelching bass, working wonderfully with the drum based percussion and the rising pad carrying things along.

Rounding up the package is ‘Moment of Truth’, an absolute monster of a track, with a vicious chord progression and stripped-back drums. The dense and complex textures give it an eerie feeling and a complex musicality that brims with rave and techno spirit in another compact and rich EP for the Portuguese label.
