Craig’s List: Kwartz

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

Every fortnight, RTRFM’s Craig Hollywood will bring us a little taste of what to expect from Tuesday’s Full Frequency…

After his debut on Pole Group last year with the track ‘Hate’ selected for the compilation release Unknown Landscapes — EP 1, Kwartz makes a return to the label with Form and Void EP. Hailing from Madrid, DJ and producer Kwartz started his career in 2011 and within a fairly short time has developed and refined his own hypnotic, dark and enveloping techno. Amongst notable releases to date is his first vinyl EP Fenomen, a joint release with Pole Group artist Exium on their Nheoma imprint.

Form and Void EP features two strong originals and two equally powerful remix supports from the label mates and core members of Pole Group, Reeko and Exium. The title track ‘Form and Void’ kicks off with straight forward 4/4 rhythmic groove that gradually builds up layer by layer in to the darker shade to meet the mysterious break, followed by heavy brooding bass tones slashing through the kick drums, deepening the atmosphere with the hollowing echoes. Reeko’s remix elevates the dark mood of original while pumping in even more energy with rolling kick/hat combo and psychedelic swirling chaos of synth that intensifies throughout the entire length of the track.

Form & Void EP will be released on Pole Group on 15 September.

Full Frequency with Craig Hollywood airs every Tuesday from 3PM on RTRFM.
