Techno Thursday with Colin Domigan and Dorian Clein

Two techno tunes today. Colin Domigan offers Hard Reset and Dorian Clein brings ARA4.

Hard Reset by Colin Domigan starts off in a way that focuses on the beats and gives a sense that this is going to be punishing going. But that’s a misapprehension. There’s a lot more going on here than the beats. This is inventive in its use of a ‘robot’ vocal and a set of chords used as a teasing melody line. Clever stuff.

Dorian Clain’s ARA4 is less techno than a tech house take on techno. It has some of that tech house repetition but undercut with some synth optimism. Never allows the beats to get out of control. Cool and sophisticated stuff.
