Nihil Young & The Saunderson Brothers - Clear EP

Detroit prodigies and descendants to techno legend Kevin Saunderson – The Saunderson Brothers make their refused. debut. Teaming up with Italian DJ/Producer Nihil Young (Frequenza),  the trifecta get experimental in the studio and create a masterful 2-piece progressive techno EP titled “Clear” to be released November 24th, 2015. 

Nihil Young has been a reoccurring name to the refused. imprint and has seen impressive success in the past year. One part of The Saunderson Brothers – Dantiez Saunderson released his first EP “Deep Something” in May on refused. and is thrilled to return with brother Damarii to release “Clear”. Just entering the scene as a techno duo, Dantiez and Damarii prove that techno runs in their blood.
The title track “Clear” is a nice and smooth progressive techno piece. It’s combination of strong, pronounced kicks and a low rumbling bassline keep a consistent groove through to the end. The song continues to bring in new elements, maintaining a constant progression. This is further accented by the fast hi-hat patterns that maintain a consistent energy. In “Golden Teach”, the song starts off with a simple, clean kick and clap, which continues throughout the track creating nice momentum.  The track has more of a mellow groove, keeping things moving with a variety of snare drums, effects, sizzling percussion and a droning vocal sample.
