Club Furies Premiere: Ricky Cross — Horse Vaccination (Cyklos Remix) [UCKER]

Last week, we presented you with the first premiere of the new UCKER label release. The rising and outstanding flourishing figure of Ricky Cross is part of the new underground international source of talent. We talk about Portugal, the rising scene in the Techno music.

Ricky Cross is the Techno project that started in 2014, created by Henrique Silva, who settles in Viana do Castelo, a small town in the north of Portugal. After a long journey in search of hypnotic sounds with strong and constant bass, he prostrates himself as one of the artists of the new litter of the Portuguese Techno scene. Trained in sound, music, and video for live shows, he is passionate about everything that surrounds a show and the sensations it transmits.

The label of the Argentinean collective UCKER presents Horse Vaccination, a mind-blowing extended play of four tracks and two remixes, made by the one and only Cyklos, the producer based in Spain.

Where’s the dimension is the perfect introduction to Ricky Cross’ hypnotic adventure. Neutral is a powerful combination of rhythmic gallop, Sci-Fi components, and enormous tension, generated by the subtle development of a paranoid melody. Kaik swirls in the trip’s dirty and sticky wastelands. The presence of pads and white noise generates a magnetic sensation. Horse Vaccination represents a direct punch to the face, driven by the most creative use of hi-hats and cymbals that give this piece a standout groove.

The syncopated version of Cyklos to Neutral breaks the 4×4 structure. It is replaced by a chaotic and celestial interpretation, something only a master can achieve. His variation of HorseVaccination is very powerful in the bass drum and bass combination, opaque and angry, as Techno should be.

Javi Sanchez, better known as Cyklos, is a disc jockey and producer, based in Barcelona, Spain. After more than 20 years in the music industry, his sessions are well defined. His style is a personal journey into the sound of the artists that have influenced him: Regis, Rumenige, Dave Clarke, Drumcell, Speedy J, P.A.S, Oscar Mulero, Christian Wünsch, Exium, Reeko. In a word, we can say that Cyklos is darkness.

Their sounds are deep, atmospheric, and well defined by kicks and hi-hats in their pure energetic form. A good mix of classic and contemporary, old and new, reality and hypnosis.

The original version of Horse Vaccination is a compact and dense bubble of Lava Techno, which unfolds ad infinitum, until it gets lost on the horizon, without managing to burst. Cyklos plunges the track into apocalyptic atmospheres, in the midst of black Techno storms that promise no emancipating future.

The sound becomes so tense that it reaches delirium; the lava bubble that formed in the original track becomes a dry fire spring that leads to the end of the road of sanity. And at the end of the road, the funnel unlocks a little. This is an extraordinary sound.

Tension, high density, locked speed, serious Techno. The qualities that Cyklos has synthesized in his remix of Horse Vaccination, using the sonic potential of Ricky Cross to enhance an already mind-blowing sound.
