The hissing vent of the open hi-hat, the smack of the clap, metal-on-metal percussion – something wicked this way comes. Going by the name ‘Mota-Mota’, its deeper bass frequencies underpin prowling rhythms, cut with truculent synths, which are spliced in turn with ethereally warped hunting horns.
It doesn’t exist in any tech/trance node or tech-house crawlspace. This is the most out-and-out techno Dakota’s dealt in eight straight years.
‘Mota-Mota’ is the first substance to surface from Markus Schulz’s 2017 ‘The Nine Skies’ project. It sees Markus in production alliance with Dutch producer Koen Groeneveld. An auditory tale of the unexpected, a transonic ride to the dark side, a postcard from the musical edge – this one will scare the horses. Once more down the rabbit hole Dear Friends… and onto the floor.
