In your face, unforgiving and undeniably raw – it’s everything you’d expected and more.

Reviewed: Eli Brown drops his vigorous 'Believe' EP on Filth on Acid

Someone certainly making their mark on the world Techno stage, Eli Brown‘s emphatically raw and undeniably commanding productions have seen him spike in notoriety in the last few years.

After spending some time in Tech House circles, Eli’s new preference for darker sounds and heavier beats have found him carving out an impressively individual identity.

The latest of his works comes on Reinier Zonneveld‘s hallowed Filth on Acid imprint. Channelling heavyweight rhythms and cutting harmonies, this acid-tinged and rave-inspired three-piece ticks all the boxes for modern Techno lovers – present company included.

Believe‘ opens the release with a breakneck pursuit, laced with the remnants of some of Eli’s best-known tracks. Racy drum grooves and ripping arps slice through a hypnotic array of synth layers and rising energy – garnished with a clever mishmash of vocal chops that dance through throbbing bass notes and hooky synth riffs.

Avenger‘ takes you on an intergalactic voyage, with sinister celestial undertones and an ethereal aura. An industrialised Techno base steadies the ship whilst its undeniable sense of panic and urgency continues to rise before you hit more rave-inspired big-room harmonies that smack you square in the face – with no apology.

The release comes to a head with ‘Addicted‘, the most potent of three over-substantial Techno warheads. Taking another industrial approach, rife with metal and machinery, it’s yet another relentless ebb and flow of modulating layers of sound that inspires a weirdly pleasant fright and leaves you gritting your teeth and ready for more.
