22 Digit Records present eclectic sounds from Rhymos' 'Drunken Eclipse' EP

UK based label, 22 Digit Records presents an eclectic sound with two new original tracks from Rhymos on the 'Drunken Eclipse' EP diving deep into the realms of Techno.

Hotly tipped but perhaps not instantly recognisable to some Aaron Binstead aka Rhymos heads up the Whistleblower label, which he runs with close friends Alan Fitzpatrick (Drumcode) and Reset Robot (Truesoul).

'Foggy Eclipse' starts with rattling hi-hats and the spare use of an eerie synth stab. With machine like precision each drum hit is perfectly placed and the track builds with a four to the floor kick pattern, but this changes at the halfway point with an introduction of a broken beat, as the track takes a whole new direction. Dark and mysterious this is a masterclass of how Tech House should be done, with both style and individuality.

Second up is the tougher and slightly more dancefloor focused '8 Beers' which starts with a Detroit influenced pad sound. Simple in its idea, the lead pad sound forms the tracks driving element, whilst rigid percussion hold the groove. Full of Techno influence, it’s hard to tell if this is a Tech House or Deep Techno track, but with such a good stripped back sound that’s full of energy does genre really matter?
