Release Date: 07.12.20
It’s a double whammy from The Rookie! Hot on the heels of our last release (STM058: Soul Taker / Oblivion), our newest signing returns to really cement 2020 as the year his sound exploded. Championing a distinctive blend of tech, trance and freeform, the enigmatic production powerhouse delivers on all fronts again with another huge two-tracker. Tearing it up on the Yin-side is ‘Konspiracy’, an absolute energy-infused freeform workout packed full of clever groovy synth stabs, NRG-style hoovers, lush arps, and a massive main hook. Delivered with a full on and unrelenting pace, this is peak-time, heads-down pure and underground freeform – utterly ballistic stuff. On the Yang-side ‘Rise Above’ goes even further down the freeform rabbit hole as our man fuses tech-trance techniques through the souped-up framework of higher tempo music. Darkside synths and general moodiness engulf a hands-in-the-air up breakdown, that provides some welcome relief from all that deep freeform nastiness! A real underground release signing off the calendar year for Stamina Records!
