Memoria Records founder Izaakson steps up to fresh minimal and techno label 17 Records with his ‘Troy’ EP, a sublime new four-track outing of expertly crafted sound.
Izaakson has earned a fine reputation in the scene over the last two decades as a DJ and producer with a stylish sound. He has spent the last 10 years solely focused on running his label, but after several invites to return to the forefront, he is now back playing and making fresh sounds once more. The first music of this new chapter has come on Memoria Records as well as Cardinal and Invade Records, and earlier this year, he launched the “IZIL” project with Massimo Girardi and Ilario Liburni. Now in solo mode, he offers up some essential club-ready grooves.
Opener ‘Troy’ is a slick and stripped-back tech cut with balmy synths circling around the snappy snares. Smart vocal fragments drop in and out as the hefty kicks power along this most compelling of backroom cuts. The excellent ‘Tek No’ is a perfectly reduced brew of deft synth modulations and rubbery drums. It comes alive with tripped-out melodic phrases as the hypnotic bass keeps dancers locked. The pace picks up with the deep, dynamic and punchy ‘Nomad’ which has curious effects and filtered vocals, all bringing the groove to life next to the party starting and acid-tinged synths. ‘Rosada’ closes down with a menacing energy and twisted synth leads over more well-defined drums and yet another irresistible bassline.
‘Troy’ EP is another great release from Izaakson, who remains as innovative as ever.
We are presenting the second track ‘Tek No’.
‘Troy’ EP will be available after the 15th of December HERE.
