Waltteri & Joel Kinnunen, two friends from Helsinki, are presenting groovy and hypnotic techno 4-tracker. Despite different and diverse background in electronic music, they share a lot when it comes to techno. DOG EP collides two worlds, two ways of making music, finding balance in workflow and mindset. It includes two collaborations and one track from each, and represents a journey towards hazy morning feelings.
Hash Acoustics is a deep, rolling groove where you can feel the snowflakes falling against the dark sky. Pulsating bass loop, distant grunts and dreamy pad will lead you into a soothing but somewhat wistful state of mind.
Trip Washer is functional, stripped back techno and comes with reduced tempo. Hefty kick pattern, sharp stabs and layered hi-hats are complemented with bittersweet pad, and the result is something to sink into.
R-Lect is the hardest and the most straight forward track on this EP. Fast, punching bass roll and repetitive stab will keep you on the hook until the very end. The main melody eventually melts with the bass roll and takes you deep into the abyss. You might feel a little trippy there.
Meter 44 is a balancing act between curious, repetitive bass groove and plaintive, yet hopeful soundscapes. Outcome is deep, driven techno for the body and mind.
