Redondo – The Flow Must Go On EP
Dutch tech house outfit Redondo seem to have multi-tasking down to an art form. In addition to running one of the groovier underground tech house labels Witty Tunes, the duo’s recent collaborative Tattoo Girl EP with Ferreck Dawn shot up the genre’s Beatport charts, with its title track peaking at #9.
Their latest EP offering on Younan Music builds on that momentum with three tightly coiled tech house tunes aimed at moving primetime dance-floors. Title track “The Flow Must Go On” sets the tone with its prominent groove and patiently introduces elements through winding breakdowns and smooth builds. “Walk the Talk” is a no-nonsense, bass-driven bumper with a hint of tribal flavor in its prominent percussion. Redondo closes out the EP in a decidedly classy fashion; layering an understated humming lead beneath crisp snares and throbbing pads. Quality tech house tracks strike a delicate balance between repetition and variation, a mature middle ground that Redondo can clearly call home.
