ReneHell - Zyankali


    We've encountered works by ReneHell before, but this time he caught our attention is a serious way. This German artist has been producing since 2014, having appeared on over 30 labels so far - from Achromatiq to Wicked Waves Recordings, and to have a full-length album released not two years after his first tracks get published can be considered an achievement - at least in our book. For a publisher of his debut LP he chose Cerebelo Records - digital label from Brazil, known for its dark-techno-oriented sound.

    Zyankali is an all-killer, no-filler album, and it contains techno works of various calibers. However, one thing that they all share in common is high-octane, club-aimed style of production that is guaranteed not to leave a single person motionless on the dancefloor. 16 numbers, ranging from 128 to 133 BPM in tempo, can all serve as effective weapons in an arsenal of a DJ who doesn't hold back in his sets and enjoys unleashing rough, boundless energy on the crowd. Zyankali runs for 2 hours, 5 minutes and 18 seconds (average track length being 8 minutes), which means you can pretty much play two hours in a row using just these tracks. Peat Noise and Timao are also featured as collaborators on two pieces of the album; by letting you know this, we're just giving some credit where credit is due. Even if you're not into dark techno, we advise that you give this album a shot, because with this much tracks it's highly probable that you'll discover at least a few that will inevitably capture your interest.
