Acclaimed Be As One boss Shlomi Aber makes a big step up here by putting out a trio of his killer techno cuts on the always excellent and forward looking NonPlus label run by Boddika. His XY Play EP continues in his no nonsense, ‘floor facing style and impresses once more.
Shlomi Aber is an underground titan who runs his own musical empire in the form of his Be As One label. He has made it into an essential outlet for no frills house and techno and his own output has found him in fine favour with DJs and dancers alike. Playing all over the world and also serving as an expert at the Emerging Ibiza festival on the White Isle, here he comes correct once more.
The title EP XY Play is a brain frying affair with cantering drums and stern synths bringing a dark and intone vibe to the groove. Way Old Story is just as heads down but less ominous, here the synths are a little spooky and add intrigue to his slick rubbery drums. Last but not least Related Sources is a hunched over house track with dub in its kick drums and a desolate industrial feel in the landscapes above.
Atmospheric from the first to the last moment, this is another killer EP from Shlomi Aber.
