"After some very strong releases by Daso, L├╝tzenkirchen and Kellerkind, Flash Recordings -- the label run collectively by Oliver Koletzki and Florian Meindl -- comes back with a subtle, but very effective bang. Introducing Ramon Tapia, who has already released on Yellow Tail, Definitive Recordings, Craft and Great Stuff to name just a few, joins the Flash crew and really makes a great first impression. Two dope cuts and one killer remix are in this package, but let's put things in order first. Ramon Tapia, son of a Chilean musician and a Dutch woman, comes from Antwerp and is equally a master of perfect intrinsic productions as well as big emotional musical dramas. The main track of this EP is 'Away,' which seems to tell the tale of Tapia's extensive musical history: some reverby percussions, a shimmering synthie, some simply beautiful big-room sweeping dubs and a great vocal. Add some hi-hats and some great creative twists that make this track oscillate between techno and house as well as a good touch of heartbreaking pop music, too. In one word: it's a hit. On the flip there is a remix by the Berlin-based production duo Chopstick & Johnjon, both real lovers of house music, too. They turn the original into a flurry tech-house ride that smoothly pushes with a constant drive towards oblivion."
