Hard Driver has been tipped for the very top by the likes of Coone and Headhunterz. With his infectious productions featuring catchy melodies and fresh, accessible, raw drops we can certainly see why. This next single from him has a hands-in-the-air glide melody and subtle vocal building up and dropping, with some seriously heavy kicks and time-stretched stabs.
Those of you who are familiar with Ekoplekz's modus operandi will know the kind of sonic pressure that will be awaiting you in any of his records. And this, a supposedly “dancefloor/ club”-orientated record is more like an opening set in a dank club in Elephant & Castle than any main room affair. Muted, dubwise, spatial and trippy with a hint of low-end theory pulse, this six-tracker is a slowly closing mandible of threshold dance music.
‘Say Another What’ and ‘Arcadia’ proved that the on-paper possibly not-so-obvious pairing of Genix & Las Salinas was in fact stylistic alchemy. That’s something their ‘Anjunabeach’ redux only serves to underline.
Big feelgood house/disco moment with a Todd Terry-style remix from Damiano Von Erckert, plus Doc Daneeka and Jacques Renault keeping the disco fires burning.
