Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons

Mechatronica
Though nowadays he’s best known for his appearances at super clubs in Ibiza and around the world, Slovenian artist Umek has a serious passion for underground electro, and as Zeta Reticula, he’s been releasing tracks since 2000. After EPs for Electrix and Bass Agenda, his latest outlet is Berlin’s great Mechatronica, and he doesn’t mess about. The title track (what a mouthful!) is a dark groove with a relentless bleeping bass, ‘Formation Of Life’ has a sinuous arp line and abstract metallic tones; the slow and low ‘Double Star’ is especially good, with its dubby keys and crisp beat, but ’12 Parsecs’ is the one for this reviewer, with its ravey key stabs and electro-funk bass.
