The birth of Sublabel Recordings is realised with the delivery of their first EP on the Black label, courtesy of John Torri.
Primary Sequence is a trio of originals from the well-versed Italian DJ / producer. Hypnotic and analogue in nature; the EP spotlights some key influences, not least in the form of classic Detroit and 303 flavours.
‘Barricades’ epitomises this vintage tone, driven by a growling acid bassline yet not devoid of melodics and sweeping musicality.
‘Hidden in the Shadows’ is a tougher, industrial techno session oozing slick and crunching percussive licks. Accentuating a depth and prowess qualified to induce the dancefloor, the track typifies Torri’s diversity.
Expertly juxtaposed, ‘The Hole’ completes the EP with a further deviation. An underbelly of acid creates an infectious rhythm upon which Detroit-infused techno stabs and melodics are permitted to circumvent.
