The latest ‘Shadow Series’ offering from Throne Room Records comes from label boss Oliver Carloni, who teams up with powerhouse Leo Lippolis. With a remix from one of the techno stars of 2017 Matt Sassari, ‘Volcano’ looks to be a solid early Christmas present.
The feature track sets the tone with a running plucky bassline and powerful arp chords. High energy, dark and deep, with brief ethereal and angelic chorus synths to split the track. Cinematic techno vibes, ‘Stromboli’ aligns with the Throne Room ‘Shadow Series’ concept. ‘Etna’ is a slightly slower alternative to the feature track, but filled with those signature arps and running bass layers. Currently sitting at No. 12 in the Traxsource Techno Charts, this B track certainly still makes its mark on the release. Matt Sassari round up the EP with his remix of Stromboli, taking things into the realms of big room techno, stripping out the running arps then beefing up the kicks and drops for a classy finish.
