The penultimate Louder Than Chaos Vol. 4 has Soma’s techno titans Slam join force with Belgiums finest export, Amelie Lens. A collaboration a long time in the making, the Glasgow duo of Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle bring their trademark crafts, melding it perfectly with Amelies driving synth lines. The output is three outstanding dancefloor killers combining both artists’ unique and powerful styles.
The dark and driving “Uncontrolled” opens Vol. 4 perfectly as steamrolling bass and punchy, rhythmic percussion lead to an ominous and twisting synth hook that propels this track skyward. Keeping the momentum going, “Clarity” instantly has an old-school groove at its heart that gradually builds into a searing acid hook that cleverly disguises dynamic melodic elements. Closing out the EP is “Construct” which shows no mercy coming out the block with a supercharged low end and electrified synths, dropping down into expertly crafted, dynamic breaks & bass-heavy breakdown before slamming back in with huge energy.
