Monika Kruse and Pig & Dan bring ‘Oblivion’ to TerminalM Records.
This is what happens when Monika Kruse, the heavyweight Techno Don meets Pig & Dan, a duo who have conducted themselves in the Techno scene and built their reputation into a formidable force. The product of the two meeting together in the studio is three Techno bangers coming in the form of the ‘Oblivion’ EP.
The ‘Oblivion’ EP is not the first time these two artists have met, with the ‘Colours’ EP landing last year and the success of this is sure to have driven the two together once more. The success, as well as the fact that they clicked instantly, are two favourable elements that have allowed them to regroup and drop this massive new EP. Three tracks, each providing their own sound and style, and each certain to provide the goods when played out to the masses.
‘Oblivion’ is first up on the EP and the title track hits hard on the dance floors with the major siren like sounds blaring through the track, while the deep bass line rumbles about in the back drop before the horn hit hard. This provides the energy and a lot of groove to those living it large and dancing the need away. There is a darkness attached to the track, though it’s not a hardened darkness, one which just provides that edge and slight haunting nature. It’s big and takes you to the edge of ‘Oblivion’.
Following on from this is ‘Boogie Man’, though there isn’t anything too scary about this one as it goes in with the cool drum samples which provide the layers to the track, while the synths rattle between the pitches to really hit home. The deep bass line once more provides the energy for the fans to feed off and the infectious nature of the track is one which comes through with the melodies which take control. The crowd are sure to love this one, it has Pig & Dan and Monika Kruse written all over it.
Last, but certainly not least, is probably my favourite track on the EP as ‘Sensation’ comes in to provide that rave like experience through the melodies and the synth sounds which capture the audience. The riveting melodies make this track, without them it wouldn’t be the same and what an impact this track is sure to have. The way in which it progresses, while still pouring out the solid amount of energy to the crowds and those listening is brilliant, a sense of effortlessness is attached to this one, but when it drops, the haunting atmosphere and the change from the groove is just awesome. Magical stuff from the ‘Obilivion’ EP and particularly Monika Kruse and Pig & Dan.
