Recondite – Phalanx (Original Mix)
Recondite has built an arsenal of songs minimal in nature, yet oozing in mysterious auras and subtle layers of sounds. Following his brief stint on Life & Death and his November album Placid, the German producer has returned to his techno roots with his newest EP on Hotflush, Phalanx.
The title track exemplifies the style Recondite excels at: overwhelmingly deep in nature, with a hint of drums pairing with a simplistic melody to propel it forward. A singular roar of sound ensues in the middle, providing an air of darkness and suspense to the base elements of “Phalanx.” Indeed, Recondite’s newest foray in the techno realm is a welcome return.
