Modus delivers new two-track ‘Operandi’ EP
Modus has been steadily making a name for himself in the LA underground with a consistent gig schedule and recurring placements at festivals like CRSSD and Nocturnal Wonderland. The producer, real name Josh Garcia, recently ended his studio hiatus with a new two track EP on LA techno imprint Imune.
Titled Operandi, Modus’ latest work showcases a compelling duality to his sound with equal parts melody and grit. The A-side, for instance, “Pinnacle,” serves up paralleling arpeggios to a backdrop of steady drum work. Meanwhile, the B-side, “Be Yourself,” showcases Garcia’s penchant for pounding European techno — the kind of work you’d expect to find on an imprint like CLR or Nicole Moudaber’s Mood.
Listen to both tracks below and catch Modus performing at Groundwater in San Diego this weekend.
