Trikk - Front EP [PETS065]

by Trikk



Pets welcome the return of old friend Trikk. The Portuguese-born, London-based producer has been tight with the Catz N Dogz camp since his label debut in 2012; remixing Rachel Row’s massive Defected-licenced ‘Follow The Step’ Since then he’s proceeded to pepper the label with his slinky, barbed tech by way of high profile remixes (Pete Tong, Paul Rodgers & Tom Flynn), album appearances (‘Friends Will Carry You Home Too’ and ‘Friends Will Carry You Home III’) and, last year, his broadly supported label EP debut ‘Firma’. Now, building on this solid foundation, Trikk returns with two of his most striking tracks to date... ‘Subito’ opens with classic ice-blast charm with sharp synth hits and lean drum arrangement set the scene. A snake-like bassline slithers around the rhythm, refusing to sit still while drama is heightened by sudden moments of absolute silence and precipitous cymbal brushes. Pensive, dynamic and perfectly restrained; this is an ideal mood changer or slate cleaner in any dancefloor scenario. For a darker shade of Trikk head for ‘Functional’, a track that belies its title. A track that merely functions will just make you dance... This will make you dance and lose your mind. Its juddering bassline mutating from palpitating heartbeat to twisted acid in tandem with the rolling drums, no one is safe from stern staccato message. This one is dangerous. Dark, stark, slinky, funky: Trikk’s unique sound is a perfect fit for Pets. We’ve no doubt he’ll be returning to the label again very soon...
