Wrapping up a hugely productive 2019, Dense & Pika’s Kneaded Pains imprint ends the year with a big bang release, bringing together a killer single from Andres Campo, and a simply huge remix from Skream.
Campo, having cut his teeth on the Spanish club scene, has seen his ascendency rise this year with a stream of releases for labels such as Intec, Odd Recordings and Second State, as well as the inauguration of his label, EI8HT, that he runs with Eats Everything.
‘Complicated’ is a big, bold, club roller, its muscular beats and frenzied mechanical tones leans upon Detroit’s musical origins whilst carrying the weight of current big room aesthetics. Dubstep pioneer, Skream, reveals his techno chops, with a stunning remix; a linear rhythm never drops in energy levels, as the synth stabs are fed through the filter, for a no-nonsense, first class banger!
Aloof melodies and synth riffs are deployed over the sturdy beats of ‘Ray’, as Campo takes it ‘one deeper’ on this direct and headsey cut.
