If you still haven’t heard about Bonkers Records, you should take the opportunity to take a quick peek at their vast catalogue. Varying from Techno and Minimal to the so-called Indie Dance and Dark Disco, you are certainly going to find some bangers amidst their more than 30 releases. A good tip is to start with their “Best Of” compilations.
After kicking off 2021 with “Jupiter” – a rave-infused dark & hardcore EP by Russian producer Johnny Kvant –, the prolific Mexican label now delivers “Vicium”, a more “well-behaved” released featuring three bouncing originals by “El Jefe” Ludviq and five neat remixes made with love by Lithuanian Aurum Miles, Argentinian Favio Inker, and Mexicans Chinosynth (FREEDL021), Fausto (SXDNS064) and Didaskein.
For his interpretation of “El Txque”, Favio Inker started speeding things up a little bit, providing a more playful atmosphere to the opening theme. The addition of more percussive elements and synth pads resulted in a more trippy version. Despite keeping the main essence of the original, Favio’s touch is highly notable and definitely one of the highlights of the release.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Beatport page of the label.
