Ben Champell – Darksome Temper EP

Ballroom Records BLRM025 17/04/2017

Hamburg resident and world-traveller Ben Champell is back on Ballroom Records for his 4th EP called ‘Darksome Temper’.

Well….the name already says it all, it’s a dark-tempered 3 tracker on the steadily growing Berlin label.

‘Bring it Back’ is the first track of the EP and opens the gates to Champell‘s dark side. A constantly grooving bassline plus a synthie-arp line that is giving it a psychodellic atmosphere. The breaks in between are really nice arranged and build up massively to drop back into a pumping techno track.

‘Blind Passenger’ is the main room, main time growler of the three. A big lo-end with a rumbling bassline and dark atmospheres with perfectly placed EFX’ make this one a monster for any big floor!

‘Experimental’ is in my opinion a mixture of the two other tracks…dark techy groove, an angry bassline and well arranged percs. It reminds me of… don’t know…it somehow sounds familiar, but that’s not a bad thing, right?

Our Verdict:

Great piece of techno! Buy! 9 out of 10
