Lurking Underwater

Barba
One of the barriers that purist electro faces in crossing over to a wider audience is the fact that it often lacks a dancefloor focus. On ‘Underwater’, Italian producer Dressel does a lot to rectify this issue. As their titles suggest, ’Creatures From The Abyss’ and ‘Dark Lake’ are focused on Drexciya’s legacy, with mysterious chords and eerie, at times malevolent synth solos to the fore. Crucially though, Dressel underpins these elements with subtle drums and kicks. Understated but effective, they will vie for attention with JTC’s acid-soaked take on the title track among more discerning DJs.
