Techno wizard Michael Klein is returning to serve up a delicious two-track Euro hopping EP that will set clubs across the globe bouncing. The Frankfurter native is an integral part of the European techno scene for many years and heralded for his savvy productions that combine intricacy with resounding venue shaking beats. Naturally enough Michael Klein has been drawn towards Sven Väth's Cocoon Recordings for this release, the Frankfurt label has been a powerhouse since the 2000s. They've had countless releases from the likes of Legowelt, Len Faki, and Alan Fitzpatrick, as well as their iconic Cocoon Compilation series, which features a bevy of artists from the label. The behemoth marriage is a match made in heaven with Klein producing two absolute barn burners that'll scorch any club.
Klein released his stunning debut album Snapshot last year and followed it up with the remixes release and his BLKDRP004 EP this year. This two-track EP begins with the eponymous cut ' Yuzu'. It enters with a vocal that seems to be chanting "Yuzu" repetitively, which is omnipresent throughout. Things really kick-off when the unbridled kick drum slams in. Punchy and bouncy, it bangs bodies into boogie. The modulated beats storming around an acid-tinged bassline, with frenzied hi-hats turn this into a fast-paced stampede. Get the foot bath ready this one will add miles to your pedometer.
It is followed by ' Eureka', more than likely what he said when he finished this one. A techno banger with a European flair. It bursts right in with a ricocheting dynamic percussion that is battering and deep. It's rhythmic though and has a hop to it. It has a euro-dance synth that adds velocity to the vessel we are boarding. It's an overreactive core, volatile and emitting all sorts of destructive mechanical sounds while hissing violently. Riding along with power and carnage, good luck to any dance floor that survives.
Yuzu will be released September 20th under the Cocoon Recordings imprint.
