So far in 2013, we’ve seen more artists daring to defy genre clasification. There is a new age for dance music coming, and producer Touvan Sughiarto – better known as Revolvr – has embraced that fact full-force with his EP “Clockwork”. The electro-influenced, two-track EP contains the big sound that Revolvr is known for, but adds in some new noise that creates a futuristic vibe.
The first song is a self-titled banger that features a punchy, techno-fueled intro with a hard-hitting bass line. After the drop, our ears are pleased by a sound reminiscent to the early deadmau5 days. All together, "Clockwork's" electro wobbles, booming bass and equalizers are unique sounding, genre bending, and make for a slamming dance track.
"Synthphony" is up next - and what an appropriate name for such an epic synth-crazy track. Opening with a pulsating drumbeat and a soft, trance-like melody, Synthphony launches into a futuristic electro rager. Revolvr's use of keyboards in the breakdown is phenomenal, and towards the end of the song, you really lose yourself in all the cleverly placed synths. Big ups, Revolvr!
