Zakari&Blange – Aphrodite EP

Ballroom Records BLRM009 12/10/2015

‘Aphrodite’ is the aptly named next release to drop on Berlin label, Ballroom Music. A treat for techno lovers all over, Aphrodite is a solid 4 track masterpiece from German duo Zakari & Blange, otherwise known as Farid Zakari and Chris Blange.

The title track, Aphrodite is a concoction of sharp percussions and dark subtle synths which continue to build throughout, followed by ‘Monkeys’, the perfect club record with long vocal reverbs, simply put, a late night’s dream. Next up is ‘Rendom’, rolling beats and addictive chord progressions which lead nicely on to the final track ‘Upper’, an atmospheric production with a superb groove and evolving ride cymbals mixed in with dark drums to complete the package.

Hailing from Germany’s Black Forest, the fairly new in the game duo are already part of the Wayward Music family, with further releases on Amazing Records and a host of remixes in the pipeline. Label bosses Kaiser Souzai have now snapped the fellow duo up to join Ballroom with ‘Aphrodite’, a sure fire way to spread techno love across the spectrum.
