This is the 5th EP release for OMEN Recordings, once again with a heavy hitting Techno EP. “Torment”, is written and produced by Los Angeles based artist, AXKAN, with remixes by Berlin based producer, Luis Flores, and French techno star, UVB.
AXKAN starts off the title track, Torment (A1), with a strong and distorted broken beat, with clean cutting snares and continues with a dirty Prophet 5 string pad melody which gives the whole release its unique melancholic character. The Distance (A2) has hard 4X4 kicks with rim shots raining everywhere in this dark, storm-like original track.
Luis Flores’ remix of Torment (B2) comes in with the perfect dramatic announcement of a broken techno master piece continuing with exciting percussive rhythms and dark melodies based on the original lead synth. UVB’s Oestrogène remix (B1) starts with a linear and powerful percussive pattern that runs throughout the track, while the recognizable lead synth is riding along in the background with soundscapes of misery.
