Raw As Fuck
mOnster heart driver
Plak is really proud to announce monster heart driver debut 12". Like Agoria, the driver is from Lyon and has really good taste for raw techno and detroit excursions. The A-side "Raw As Fuck" is straight from the mid 90's with a small detour via the year 3000. An analog session recorded on the fly, loud kick, phat toms, oversized nasty hats and a rave gimmick for your head, forget the forward thinking depressive thing, this shit is a perfect big room techno tool, you gonna smile, dance and sweat ! On the flip side "The Path" is your late rainy sunday companion, it will show you the road off detroit,UR and Shakir are at the corner, to Bristol dubby thing…unreal excursion that worth the trip. Welcome home m0nster heart driver !
