The 17th release on Cid Inc's formidable Replug imprint sees the debut of Spanish producer Soulwerk. Gonzalo Luque aka Soulwerk had his first and only release thus far came courtesy of the Canadian label Whose Haus back in May of this year. It was a spectacular debut that contained 3 original tracks that were of the caliber of a seasoned veteran. Soulwerk's debut for Replug is entitled 'Fraktals' and it contains two new originals and a remix from top Slovenian producers Alex & Filip.
The lead track 'Fraktals' opens the release off with a tough and meticulous groove. An assortment of old school claps and a fuzzy, hypnotic loop forge an incredibly fresh design. The peak time drive and energy is catapulted by an expansive breakdown. As the drop progresses the rich atmosphere evolves to a vibrate climax that should see great reactions from all the educated dance floors out there.
Alex Nemec & Filip Wieser joined forces in 2005 and in doing so the Alex & Filip production moniker was born. DJs from Marco Bailey to Dave Seaman have sung their praises and they've appeared on Rekluse, Respekt, Flow and their own esteemed Mirabilis imprint. They make their debut on Replug here and provide the lone remix of 'Fraktals'. Alex & Filip have provided a much more techno inspired sensibility on 'Fraktals'. The chugging groove and intricate design are ultra modern and geared perfectly for today's dance floors. The consistent atmospheric tension from the original shines through as well and should inspire some striking big room moments.
The second original 'Spirals' concludes the package with a supple techno vibe that is both melodious and esoteric. The galloping beats meld well with Soulwerk's subversive groove for a wonderfully sleek and sophisticated concept. The seamless flow is interwoven with distinguished yet subtle leads combined with dazzling hypnotics that flutter about for an unparalleled contemporary vibe that is quite exhilarating.
