Various – Nonnative 06 (Semantica NNN06 – 2014)
Sweden, Colombia, Ukraine and USA – this is the background of artists featured in the sixth part of Semantica’s Nonnative series. Pär Grindvik, the Berlin-based founder of Stockholm LTD and a trusted source for rolling techno tracks, leads in with oxygenous bells-and-bass cut “Mould, Damp, Love”. Adriana Lopez, a producer from Bogota and now residing in Barcelona, possesses the talent for, daring to say that, funky techno and her pumping contribution “Permanent Condition” speaks for itself.
“Paradigm” by Kiev’s Etapp Kyle is neat but usual club track before closer attention is required again. Israel Vines has chosen thinner textures than in recent remixes for Trensmat or Interdimensional Transmissions, but the L.A.-based Michigan native stays in the limelight with “Precipice”.
