Teknian – Sonic EP
Posted by Mach on January 7, 2013
We’re only a week into 2013 and already Teknian has delivered the first quality EP of the year. Having only announced the EP about a few weeks ago, and seeing a tracklist containing all tracks that fans of his have been dying for, I knew this EP was going to be sick to say the least. People in the music forums have been requesting the starter track, “1984,” for some time now. I had never found a clip of it to listen to so I didn’t understand what all the hype was about. Now that I have listened to it, I can see why everyone was dying for the release of this fun 80s style Glitch-Hop track. Next, “Behemoth,” which has to be my favorite on the EP, actually has a cool story. Back when Avicii’s “Fade Into Darkness” remix competition was going on, “Behemoth” was the instrumental to Teknian’s remix. After he realized how awesome his instrumentals were, he pulled the track out of the competition and delivered a heavy bass blow to our eardrums. “Sonic” is another track I have only heard stories about. It starts out like Drum & Bass, leaving you to think it might turn into Neuro-Funk. Like a B0:55, Teknian drops the bass leaving you speechless to this Dubstep fire. The last track on the EP was a complete surprise to all those anticipating its release. Teknian has been known to troll and produce outside his usual styles, but to have a house track like this one just hanging out amongst a sea of bass seemed ridiculous. “You Make Me So” is actually one of the funkiest Deep House tracks I have laid my ears upon and is a lot of fun to listen to. The “Sonic” EP is a great success, and in my opinion, Teknian did an incredible job.
