Who is The Rookie? Having cut his teeth way back on freeform vinyl as early as 1998, this man has used multiple aliases over the years, notching up releases on the original Digital Beats, Hecttech, Electronica Exposed. Here he rebirths under a brand new moniker for future freeform productions, crash-landing on Stamina Records with a supreme killer debut 2-track EP. Spearheading the Ying side is ‘Rock & Roll’, an absolute workout in tech-trance tinged hardcore freeform, that packs a killer groove, maximum euphoric breakdown and mind-blowing dancefloor drop… with plenty of analogue acid in-between! Taking it over to the Yang side and The Rookie keeps the trance themes running high alongside more proper groovy tech stab work, as ‘Rezerekton’ slams the accelerator on supersaw euphoria thanks to its big uplifting main hook. Hands-in-the-air rolling business is the order of the day for this one, finishing off perfectly an outstanding EP from an artist to watch on the Stamina roster for 2020.
