Destination Madrid: Penrose Records founder David Ponziano returns to the controls with two high voltage originals and remixes from Alvaro Cabana & Julian Sanza and Undo…
‘Blindfold’ taps into a vibrant, poppy, synth-heavy sound. Sitting somewhere between Kraftwerk and Underworld with an added vocal call to action, this pushes all the right buttons with an unrelenting groove and strong sense of triumph running throughout. Remix-wise these elements are flipped into a deep cosmic chug as 2020 Soundsystem / Silver City maverick Julian Sanza and Holographic Planes’ Alvaro Cabana go dark mode with an absurdly powerful and heady workout.
The work continues with ‘Where You From?’ A dramatic slab of bleep-fuelled tech that’s reminiscent of the mid 90s German Tresor sound. Rising and rising with tension and just the right amount of theatre, this one asks all the right questions and your dancefloor will guarantee a reaction.
For a deeper perspective head to Undo’s remix. A foreboding and stern take that nods to the legacy of Black Strobe, this one pulsates with tension as we march into the future. It’s a reminder that things aren’t always about where we’re from… It’s about where we’re heading.
