NYC’s Slam Mode bring their futuristic sound to Jerome Sydenham’s UK Promotions label.
Angel Rodriguez and Michael Cole – better known as Slam Mode to Techno and House fanatics – have been churning out their distinctive brand of beats since the dawn of the of 90s for labels such Right Area, Glasgow Underground, Ibadan and now for Jerome Sydenham's other baby, UK Promotions with their, 'Sedation In Noise EP: Component Uno'
'Therapy' graces the A-Side with its epic Detroit style pads, that are very reminiscent of UR during its golden years.
Experimenting with acid may not be for everyone, but for those who can handle the stimulation know it can leave a mark on your, well, 'Cortex'. One of the most recognizable and enduring sounds in dance music gets the Slam Mode treatment.
Sparking your sense on the B-Side is, 'Imagine'. Heavy 8-Bit rhythmic tom patterns set the track in motion before the modernity that Slam Mode are known for in the form of sci-fi Motor city pads and melodic sytnh harmonic interludes take over.
'Andromeda' seals this EP off with a delicate and sparse piece of hybrid fusion of Techno with musical rhythms. Only a few can make tracks as pristine as this.
Slam Mode's outing on UK Promotions, shows their versatility as well as a glimpse into the future of what will shape this labels vibe.
