The first track on Side A, ‘Under The City’ is an original produced by Joachim that steadily builds into a driving melody. The rhythm is catchy and infectious and made for the dancefloor. Waning deliberately, ‘Under The City’ delicately tapers off to only find itself strengthen again into something even more fierce. On Side B we find remixes by Rolando and Reggy Van Oers. Rolando gives ‘Under The City’ a minimal feel at first and then unwaveringly creates anticipation for the next chord. Well-known for his Ostgut Ton sound, Rolando keeps ‘Under The City’ groovy and melodious and adds more of an underground touch straight out of Germany. Reggy van Oers finishes off this 12” with a remix that gradually accelerates mixing in various elements to bring the EP to a climax.
‘Under The City’ has all the right fluctuation to be played in a variety of situations and circumstances. Whether to be played at peak hours to a large crowd or to close out or open the night, ‘Under The City’ is a very diverse and eclectic EP that can satisfy a wide range of Techno connoisseurs.
