"The Boys from Uruguay are back with another burner of an EP. Monoblock's debut EP was in everyone's crate that knew anything about minimal techno and was rocked in sets from DJ Bobo to Richie Hawtin. Since then the boys have been one of the most sought after live acts in the world and continue to help keep the genre alive by delivering some seriously funky techno. The EP starts off with the ultra funky Roller called 'Rizco.' Not wasting any time Monoblock get right to it and roll out a carpet of percussion backed with some signature bouncing analog bass. A perfect combination of sounds running up and down the scale. Continuing down the same path, things strip back a little here with 'Dobason,' a more playful cut with the focus on the overdriven lead bass. Our old friends the 808 and 909 are there to play in the mix too. Then things in this track take a little melodic left turn and explore a dissonant direction that somehow leads you right back to where you started. Finally leaving you in the deep with 'Ombù,' a subterranean mixture sounding like Basic Channel meets Gotan project. A dreamy plucked synth soaked in reverb dances around some Uruguay style accordion and sequences of percussion. Molting with a deep sub roll and delayed chord stabs this track definitely shows off the musical abilities of this duo. Once again Monoblock write another EP that is sure to resonate on dancefloors worldwide this summer."
