Art Department – Heartbreakers Techno (Original Mix) [Free Download]
Canadian exports Kenny Glasgow and No. 19 label owner Jonny White celebrate the 5-year anniversary of No. 19 Music with the free release of “Heartbreakers Techno.” The track pairs fluid melodies with synthetic dissonance, creating a clash of sounds that compete yet compliment each other throughout the mix. Spastic organ work sits effortlessly on top of a gripping percussive section, one that is teeming with shakers, claves and claps. It’s a strange pairing that results in the creation of a powerfully melancholic atmosphere, further embodying the track’s namesake and the pair’s forward-thinking approach to their art.
The full compilation can be heard here, and the duo can be seen live on Sunday at Coachella.
