Ramiro Lopez is a name which always stands out for me when looking around the Techno genre for new music. It always seems that he delivers some of the best tunes that you could simply want, across a number of different labels. And he has seriously impressed once more. The ‘Being Alone‘ EP is a major release from the artist on Drumcode.
Drumcode, Suara, Intec and many other labels have all been graced by the Spanish producer and DJ’s presence. His music has led him to become one of Spain’s leading Techno artists and it really isn’t hard to see why. The three track ‘Being Alone’ EP is his newest release and this is his follow up release to his ‘Pretending’ EP which he released on Drumcode back in May. And this is a thunderous new release from the artist, highly impressive.
‘Being Alone‘, the title track, is the first to be showcased and what a way to kick start things than with this track. This one is all about the journey which you undertake. With a thumping beat holding down the track, the melodies come through to change the whole atmosphere and add an extra edge. But it’s the way in which the sounds change, through from the drop to the break and back into the drop again. The vocal, the beat, the synths, it has everything, it’s a massive tune.
‘Dark Science‘ follows on from this and it has a more gritty appeal to it through the bass line that has been used. It’s a major piece of production work, one which is sure to gain a big reaction in the club or festival. It drills away through the bass line and the low melodies which flit throughout the track, this one really brings a dark atmosphere with it. Last but not least is ‘Der Raum‘ and this is another release which does not disappoint. The mixture of the drums and the synth work in this one stands out brilliantly, the intricate sounds which work in the background, it’s just Techno perfection. This is exactly why Ramiro Lopez has been at the forefront of Techno. He never lets you down.
