Review: Spanish techno legend Oscar Mulero presents the second installment of Warm Up's limited edition Bandcamp Vinyl series, with three straight up techno tools from a true master of the craft. On 'WUBC 2', feel the mental overdrive of A-side cut "Gradual Blending" which will punish you with its relentless groove, go deeper into the later hours with the more restrained B-side offerings like the hypnotic and strobe-lit gallop of "Evolutionary Decay" or the Millsian majesty of "Natural Resources". Best described by the label itself as 'merciless techno designed to shake minds and feet.'
Review: Spanish techno titan Oscar Mulero leads from the front with his new label Warm Up, which deals in anything but early hours techno. Here he offers up four powerful tracks of heavy drum grooves that are designed to generate maximum destruction on the dance floor. "Transparent Ray" is a rooted groove with freewheeling synths riding up and down through the mix to hypnotic effect, while "Solarized" is all about punishing drum programming and expertly linear techno. "Opposite" offers something different - a more stripped back and reserved deep techno exploration with shady corners and suspenseful synths. Quite the start.
