Gregor Tresher – System X EP [DC106]


Released by: Drumcode
Release/catalogue number: DC106
Release date: 28/1/2013

Gregor Tresher thunders back with his second solo EP for Drumcode. Gregor has been busy throughout 2012 with lots of new material and remixes being released on Cocoon, Ovum and Music Man and has released lots of new music and remixes on his very own imprint, Break New Soil. Break New Soil was launched in 2009 and has gone from strength-to-strength. Highly regarded within the tech- house world, the imprint has releases from the likes of Bart Skils, Karotte, Dosem and Gregor himself. DJ’ing across the world every week to packed out clubs and rocking the party deep into the early hours of any morning, he knows how to work a crowd.

Gregor has delivered four outstanding tracks for Drumcode that are creative, whilst still functional. Relevance uses a filtered, bubbling synth line and sparse percussion effectively to build a groove that will rip through any club. System X uses a detuned synth stab and an unusual bass line harmoniously to construct a track that sounds like its from out of space. Secura is a straight-laced techno groover that uses some distinctively unfamiliar sounds. The track is gelled together with a repetitive hum sound that adds to the groove. The fourth track on the EP; Call To Arms, uses a melodic rhythmic sequence and reverberated drums to eloquently smash any dancefloor.
