DJ 3000 and his Motech Records imprint have always been synonymous with quality Detroit Techno that conforms to “no rules”, and the ‘Hadjë EP’ delivers four tracks that will provide solid ammunition for a plethora of dance floors, from the sun swept hedonism of Ibiza’s terraces to the dark and dirty pulsing main rooms of Berlin.
DJ 3000 explores the rawer side of techno with this EP, which gives nod to his Albanian roots, the title track ‘Hadjë’ further demonstrates DJ 3000’s ability to transition between more Eurocentric styles of Techno, yet still achieving to lock the listener in with grooves that are the signature of a DJ 3000 production.
Deas, hailing from Poland recently released on Pan-Pot’s imprint, Second State Recordings. Deas is one of the new breed of talented Techno artists. His ‘Hadjë’ remix delivers a spellbinding Techno track, with driving baseline set against a haunting piano stab.
‘Raki’, which was already featured in Resident Advisor’s New Tracks is a triumphant progressive Techno offering that builds through delightful basslines and filtered chords, with results that are equally hypnotic and driving. The remix for ‘Raki’ is delivered by Off Recordings label boss Andre Crom who provides a darker, more minimal interpretation full of reverberated drums and minimal percussion.
The ‘Hadjë EP’ is released 25th June on digital format. If this EP is a statement of where the future lies for DJ 3000 and Motech Records, Detroit Techno is heading for an exciting new chapter.
