The four-track raucous and mind-bending project crosses IDM, acid, and techno; and is imprinted under his Ssensorial label. You can expect some organic analog beats that are deep, pensive, and textured with wet expanding ripples and wistful synths.
'Voyage' is a head-melting trip down a dark hole, only to have a peaceful interlude of gentle, sweet, serine keys which massages the ears and lifts the soul; as the mechanical churn of the four by four beats plugs you along.
'Bruxismo' enters like a succession of fast hand gut punches. Quick percussions merge with an underlying rave synth, that slithers in and out but is juxtaposed by a xylophone. The melancholic keys dance around the harsh percussions, like the Beaty and The Beast waltz.
EP title track 'Hypereactive-1' is a dubious and sometimes brutal affair. Acidically tinged and with snappy drum patterns, it holds the fascinating layer that is omnipresent throughout the project: reckless beats that work in paradox with ethereal symphonies.
The big finale is 'Bracing' with an odd combo of a slow like tempo but crashing percussions. A panoramic drone invades fluttering drum patterns. It heads towards a choir-like synth; the drum adds the velocity, but the keys hang then float away aimlessly, like unsuspecting dear catching sight of a human being.
Overview. Release that shows the evolution and sound maturity of Niño Árbol in relation to his introspection and exploration of analog-electric instruments. The result is a well-rounded EP with an original rhythmic base that leaves the paradigm of the traditional 4/4 metric, giving life to a new sound that‘ll serve as a turning point for Mexican Techno.
Bittersweet atmosphere and emotion that go from the profound to the dreamy, through forceful percussive and organic psychedelic texture.
