Adam Beyer‘s label Drumcode released the second instalment of the Swedish Silver compilation series today. There has a been a huge amount of anticipation for this release and we can see why. It really showcases how much techno talent Sweden has produced and is a fine testament to what Adam Beyer has built with the label. Compilations can often be tricky, sometimes you get the sense of filler tracks that just make up the numbers but there is no sign of that here with 8 solid peak time bombs that all deliver and pack a serious punch. You only have to look at the names involved to have an idea of the quality to expect but as soon as you start to listen to the selection you will hear any expectations you had are reached and then some!
It’s very difficult for us to pick one particular track from this bunch but if pushed we would have to opt for the lead track by Stockholm based Mikael Jonasson titled “Benefit Of The Doubt”. It’s an intense track that bursts with energy whilst constantly building and maintaining an air of tension that really had us hooked on the first listen. The clever melodic bleeps swirl over a dark soaring bass that just smacks in all the right places. The drums are very tight and we love the off beat snares that hit hard and help keep the track grooving through the various sections.
