Big-room techno loaded with details.
In a similar spirit, The New York-based Russian producer makes functional big-room techno with eccentric flourishes. The sound palette reflects the greyscale techno that rules clubland these days, but her textures and arrangements are intricate. "1991" has a low-key tribal groove with a repeating chord that melts into the background. The way that chord subtly changes shape is as engrossing as the fluttering snare pattern. The wiggly "1984" is quirky and minimal, while "0031" is the big techno banger, albeit one where every sound is meticulously tweaked. The chords ping like underwater sonar, the kick drum is rubbery and the hi-hats jiggle. These inventive touches enrich the functionality of Govor's techno.
