Following his "What You Think EP" in March this year, Cuyi Siu aka Confidential Recipe returns to Rekids Special Projects with "Hold That Jack EP", turning in another set of fiercely no-nonsense techno cuts inspired by his formative years of clubbing in Venezuela.

With this release, I want to show a different side of my vision for dance music, a tribute to the classic jacking minimal sound and Detroit techno that has influenced me since I started going to parties in my hometown, Maracaibo.

Leading the release, title track "Hold That Jack" sees swaying synths, shuffling drums, and hyped vocal samples interplay for a seriously heavy techno cut, before "Senso" adopts a more stripped back approach, injecting energetic drums, subtly evolving bleeps and sliced samples for a heads-down trip. "Toolkit 2" follows with chunky percussive hits rattling around a broken synth line destined for cavernous warehouses. Final track "Starter" ups the tempo with heavy low-end and skipping hi-hats for a powerful and decisive end to the EP.
