Paride Saraceni – ‘Heroes EP’ – (SNATCH)

Italian born producer Paride Saraceni serves up a pair of hypnotising techno cuts on Riva Starr’s Snatch! Records. A regular in Beatport’s Top 10 charts, Paride Saraceni has recently appeared on Truesoul, Tronic, Terminal M and Sci+Tec, making the UK based producer’s reputation indisputable. He’s fast become praised by the upper echelons of house and techno with Adam Beyer, Maya Jane Coles, Dubfire and Nicole Moudaber all showing their support, with Roger Sanchez even nicknaming him ‘the studio wizard’. He now returns on Snatch! Records to once again exhibit his distinct production prowess. The mesmerising ‘Heroes’ chugs forward with throbbing synths, ethereal atmospherics and a heavily distorted recognisable sample. Meanwhile, ‘Bass Culture’ combines crunchy percussion with eerie drones and a whispering vocal singing the track title. All in all this is Techno how it should sound like!
