Toledo's Ramiro Lopez up next for Swedish heavy hitters Drumcode: so you know he's not messing around. The main room powerslam of "Being Alone" kicking off the EP, with its steely warehouse ready rhythms are complimented by a Mills/Hood styled bleep melody and the odd rave horn for good measure. This one will be sure to create some tension on dancefloors near you soon. On the flip, The peaking, strobe-lit dancefloor drama continues on the brooding austerity of "Dark Science" while "Der Raum" by contrast offer up something more euphoric and uplifting. This elevating DJ tool features hypnotic, almost trance like arpeggios, throbbing bass and droney stabs to draw in the crowd, before getting them to surrender to the void again later. Lopez presents a tight EP here which follows up releases on top labels such as Terminal M, Bedrock, Intec and of course his own Odd Recordings which he runs with fellow Drumcode alumnus Arjun Vagale.
