DC172 comes on behalf of Brazilian born Vinicius Honorio, a now London based producer and DJ who is making some serious in-roads amongst a new breed of techno artists. Having already released on labels such as Pig&Danâ€™s Elevate and dubspeekaâ€™s Skeleton, the next natural step in his progression comes in the form of a release on Drumcode.
â€˜Through The Darknessâ€™ is a masterclass in darkened techno grooves, with each one of the four tracks managing to show off Honorioâ€™s skill as a producer and just why he is firing on all cylinders. The release kicks off with â€˜Walking Shadowâ€™, a track that has been a key part of Adam Beyerâ€™s sets at the tail end of 2016 and in to the new year. This tense, brooding affair has certainly garnered a lot of attention of late and itâ€™s clear to see why. The title track â€˜Through The Darknessâ€™ is a much more of a stripped back cut, jam-packed with a haunting vocal hook, driving basslines and slick drums. This is one for the late night mischief makers. â€˜Desolateâ€™ is another hard-hitter, managing to perfectly balance that signature Honorio groove and pounding drums that adds depth to his productions. The release closes with the atmospheric â€˜Out For Bloodâ€™, which is loaded with vintage rave stabs and weighty basslines â€“ This one is meant to played in dark and sweaty rooms.
