Rebel Boy & Sam WOLFE – Psalm 39 EP [1605]

UMEK’s 1605 returns with a new release from up-and-coming artists Sam WOLFE and Rebel Boy, who have been making a name for themselves as solo artists in between their collaborative projects.

1605 is a label that regularly features UMEK’s own music alongside other established names such as the Cosmic Boys and Space 92, but it’s also become a breeding ground for fresh talent. Mha Iri, Dok & Martin and Mattia Saviolo being just a few of the people whose careers have spring-boarded after being featured on the imprint.

Both Rebel Boy and Sam WOLFE have already been making waves on other labels, and together they also had a three-way collaboration with The YellowHeads on Senso Sounds.

Many will already be familiar with Rebel Boy after dropping solo tracks on Spektre’s Respekt and Frankyeffe’s Riot Recordings. Sam is equally as prolific with his individual contributions to the likes of Christian Smith’s Tronic. Both of the guys are based in America, and it’s their collaborative works that have perhaps been the most impressive.

The EP’s title track is “Psalm 39”, and it kick starts the proceedings in style. Fuelled by dramatic snare rolls and grinding textures, it wouldn’t be complete without the dominant kick drum that often defines the techno genre. Highly explosive and packing one hell of a punch, the groove is unrelenting until it hits the dark atmosphere of the main breakdown. Ramping up the tension, it hits terminal velocity when the percussion slams back in with a stabbing melody.

“Dismantle The System” has the potential to do exactly as the title suggests; the temptation to play it at maximum volume is hard to resist, so be careful you don’t get over-excited and blow your speakers, lol. Dark and menacing, it’s everything that makes a great techno track, and watch out for the grinding bass after the main breakdown, as it really does send shivers of excitement down your spine.
