Mikkel Metal – Fron (SEMANTICA 48 – 2012)
By sound picture it can be called a predictable appearance by Mikkel Metal, the man mainly associated with the dub techno outlet Echocord. The Danish artist has now arrived on Semantica to, once again, express his affection for dubby chords. Although representing the laid-back compartment of Semantica’s catalogue, the new signing on the Spanish imprint still delivers three tracks with notable dancefloor functionality.
Focused on repetition, the A-side’s “Mafostam” seems to loop endlessly and serves as an introduction to two pretty cuts on the flip. The highlight is called “Staron”, an effective tool to conquer the crowd’s hearts and minds with ample bass, inflated dubs and thriving chords. Equally awesome track comes for the end, when “Finder” digs really deep and offers an oceanic view, not far from the camp of Porter Ricks.
