Harvey McKay - Dropout [Intec Digital]

UK-based DJ/producer Harvey McKay return to Carl Cox and Jon Rundell’s celebrated label Intec with his new EP entitled, ‘Dropout’. This superb two-track release is the Glaswegians third EP on the imprint, following on from ‘Something Good’ in 2014 and ‘Wrong Turn’ in 2015.

As well as leaving his mark on Intec, McKay has previously released on prestigious labels such as Sian’s Octopus, Adam Beyer’s Drumcode, Slam’s Soma, Sven Vath’s Cocoon and Coyu’s Suara.

The titled-named track, ‘Dropout’, kicks off proceedings, seeing a fierce concoction of high-tension looped-up drums, vocal snippets, Funk chord stabs and numerous crunchy percussive elements which are interspersed throughout. Mid-way through, an intrinsic breakdown sees the pounding drums subside momentarily; helping inject more energy into the surging floor filler as it regains momentum.

To conclude the release, ‘Terma’ offers a more soulful Techno sound that McKay has so often been praised for in the past. The track leads with a steady selection of drum loops and a repeated chord pattern, whilst vocal snippet are added throughout the seven-minute masterpiece to further enhance the track’s powerful deep-and-techy groove.
