The melodies are huge and the beats are fast, but this techno isn't for everyone.
I suspect that's a no-go zone for most serious-minded techno selectors; others who play to less traditional crowds should have a blast with these tracks. "Taste The Excess" reminded me of going to see Scott Project, a German hard trance DJ with a personal brand to die for, back in 2001. (To a DJ with some of the most explosive melodies and toughest drums back then, I definitely mean this as a compliment.) "Blue Euphoria" matches these intensity levels and folds in a sugar-rush breakdown that should nicely split opinion. The final two tracks will appeal to DJs who dig this aesthetic but want something more subtle. The urgency of "Golden Star" creeps up on you as its synth lead unfurls, and "Continental Heartbeat" has one of those simple rave bleeps, left high in the mix, that work so well on a less-than-sober dance floor.
