Szare - Parched / Scored
(£8.48 Incl VAT)
Released 29th January 2016
Manchester based Project 13 continue to bolster what’s quickly becoming an extolled catalogue of UK-indebted Techno - one that has already garnered support from an impressive collection of tastemakers including Ben UFO, Pearson Sound, Pariah, Robag Wruhme and Alan Fitzpatrick. In the follow up their first two releases from Acre and Divided (with Hodge on remix duties) with the next instalment courtesy of Mindset and Idle Hands affiliated duo, Szare.
Also hailing from Manchester, Szare are a pair who utilise brash, concrete kick drums, tribal rhythms and unforgiving synth tones to forge a cold and unforgiving sound that pair them perfectly with Project 13. Their Parched / Scored EP shows Szare delving deep and one fans of the P13 series will relish: 2 dogged club-cuts that hold no prisoners.
‘Parched’ kicks things off with metallic drums set dramatically rattling and pinging through the mix before a tough, rasping bass tone swells into focus. Patient in it’s progression, a tense, stormy tone is dialled throughout before ‘Scored’ sets a ⅞ rhythm tumbling through sharp, hissing percussion. Natural sequencing sees elements dipped in and out as more tense pressure is maintained in another fine addition to the Project 13 series.
