DA Premiere: Richie G – Thunder Roll / The Dance Floor (Original Mixes) [Free Download]
Led with sparing yet consistently tuned force, 2013 was a marker year for Canadian techno evangelist Richie G. The marker year saw him debut on Nicole Moudaber’s Mood imprint with a courageous three-track venture, setting a considerable precedent for the slow burning talent and the notable momentum building behind his name. Kicking off the New Year now with free two-track instalment, the Montreal-based breakout matches underground aptitude with comprehensive production force for an illuminating kick start to the year. “Thunder Roll” and “The Dance Floor” reaffirm Richie’s striking ability to breed consistent techno wizardry at a time of hit-or-miss releases for the genre as a whole. With an impending remix for Hot Since 82 vs Joe T Vannelli’s ‘The End’ slated for release in March on Moda Black and a wealth of North American tour dates emerging on the horizon, Richie G might well be the breath of fresh air required to give techno its affirmative new age stamina for 2014.
