Paul Ritch is fucking up your brain chemistry in the most delightful way with his marvelous new 5 track EP called Pressure. At a time when every sort of producer is whipping out Death Rave 2000 sample packs and weaving deliberately kitschy progressive elements into their tracks, Ritch answers the call with a techno record as dark and dirty as an industrial steam tunnel.
These are made for DJing but they fit together aesthetically, with the bleeding sonics of “Mental Pressure” drawing you along until the unexpected breakbeat fill on “Macro Pressure” trips your feet out from underneath you:
Four tracks are tied together (“Mental Pressure,” “Macro Pressure,” “Under Pressure” and “Electrik Pressure” with a remix by Ricardo Garduno to wrap it up.
Pressure was released on April 3 2020 and is available now on Bandcamp.
