Over ten years passed, and here we are with a 30th release on Warsaw’s Recognition Records. The artist here is… Recognition, which is both new and old alias of label boss, Jacek Sienkiewicz. After years of experimenting and pushing further the boundaries of modern dance music, from minimal to truly maximum complicity, Jacek decided to go back to the very roots of primal, raw club music without losing his trademark, multi-layered, highly sophisticated sound. Three tracks featured here are brief compared to some previous outings, but no less elaborate - solid beats and truly ravishing melodies are carefully placed within dozens of layers of sounds. A1 (030) puts hands in the air almost immediately, carrying an array of crystalline sounds and truly uplifting, cosmic strings, underpinned by a massive groove. Back to the roots indeed - this is the true spirit of vintage Detroit techno, filtered through the years of experience and brought to the world in today’s Warsaw. Without doubt it’s gonna be one of the major dancefloor hits of the year, already championed by some top DJs. B side further explores the classic techno roots, updating them for here and now; while B1 (130) is a serious, stripped-down, modest affair, B2 (230) warms things up with lush synths and swirling bass.
