Ekman – Acid7 (Berceuse Heroique BH 006 – 2014)
Ekman, in real life Dutch producer Roel Dijcks, returns to London upstart Berceuse Heroique after having done the label’s debut release in 2013. Ekman’s capability to spread dirty beats has been also witnessed on imprints like Solar One Music, Panzerkreuz or Shipwrec and the new single follows suit.
The track “Acid7” has terrorized the eardrums of digital youth via Soundcloud for several months and now it’s materialized in the black 180 Gram wax. Ekman’s angry and monotone acid techno hails the legacy of the 1990’s Bunker while on the flip L.I.E.S. and The Trilogy Tapes visitor Vereker drops a contaminated remix featuring explosive drums last time heard on Ed DMX’s “Cerberus”. Recommended for those fond of Berceuse Heroique’s L’estasi Dell’oro single.
