Anthony McGinley AKA ABSOLUTE. has been relentlessly working away in the studio for the last twelve months with results to match; two Beatport number 1’s, killer remixes for the likes of Maya Jane Coles, Tiga & Steve Lawler and plenty of love from Mixmag, DJ Mag and beyond. Harnessing this momentum, and with another long hot summer just around the corner, it’s perfect timing to reveal four new weapons via his freshly minted Family Planning project.
The dramatic message of title track ‘Rave Against The Machine’, is echoed by the huge sounds throughout the rest of the EP. ‘The Maze’ and ‘Charge>>>’ will find champions amongst festival headliners as both burst with character and energy. Whilst ‘Alive (Hold Up)’ takes on a life of its own as the stripped down raw 808 beats build into a wall of synths to create ‘that’ moment in fields and dance floors throughout the summer season. Purposely pitched down, ‘Alive (Hold Up)’ has a brooding drama that’s fresh and hints at a wider desire to surprise us with more ABSOLUTE. music from outside of the dance...
