Carlo Lio & The Junkies – Icon EP
After reaching their landmark fifth release back in August, Nicole Moudaber’s MOOD Records continues its stunning run of releases with a joint EP from Canadian techno titans Carlo Lio & The Junkies. Set for release on 21st September, the ‘Icon EP’ is firmly aimed at the dance floor with two trademark powerful and driving tracks.
Title track ‘Icon’ kicks off the EP by combining juddering bass, a warped vocal and unnerving industrial sounds, all of which serve to create an air of tension. With further percussion and eerie elements added to the equation, ‘Icon’ results in an atmospheric and hypnotic techno cut.
Next up is ‘Bluprint’ which captivates the listener from the off using punchy percussion, a brooding synth and a distorted menacing vocal. The track thuds along until boiling point upon which it drops back into its powerful rolling groove.
As expected from producers as experienced as Carlo Lio & The Junkies, they have combined with devastating effect on the ‘Icon EP’ and have managed to serve up two expertly programmed techno tracks packed full of menacing underground sounds.
