Infectious EP by Marcal

Lady Tazz's Mind Medizin label welcomes Marcal for an adventurous new techno two-tracker.

Infectious EP by Marcal. Art by Mind Medizin Art by Mind Medizin

Brazilian-born and based, Marcal has now reached a global audience with his spellbinding techno and haunting atmospherics. His intelligently designed sounds on labels like Rekids Special Projects have found favor with everyone from Charlotte de Witte to Richie Hawtin. He has built a local scene in his hometown of Goiânia and now lands on the forward-thinking Mind Medizin label.

The opener "Infectious" is a mind-altering and wonky techno workout. The unbalanced synths warp and wrap around each other to dynamic effect, while oversized hi-hats ramp up the pressure. The drums hit hard and it results in supple, stylish, and high impact backroom techno. The equally excellent "Lambda Core" is more dark and glitchy, with scraping hits and scuffed-up kicks. The textured sound designs really bring this track alive as ghoulish vocals and hypersonic loops take you down a late-night techno tunnel.

This is a brilliant brace of muscular and emotive techno tunes.
