Boomkat Product Review:
The next uplifting winner from DJ Rolando is ‘Quetzal’, a track almost in sync with his massive ‘Jaguar’ cut. Extremely melodic and accessible techno from the Latin King of Detroit, simple stabs and heartfelt strings are the order of the day, backed by a funky drum loop with cowbells a la Derrick May and a warbling bass line its a sure fire winner. The flip offers the tougher and sparser ‘Tescat’, with modulating synths and samples that rise throughout the track to create quite a groove, almost tribal, but has all the subtle Detroit touches like backwards drum rolls and beatdrops. This will be a future Detroit classic, as it doesn’t put a foot wrong and contains everything it should plus that hidden x-factor. Ace.
