Founded in 2018, the still-young and consistent label Richmerch has been since then devoting its efforts to releasing high-quality House, Techno, and Electro infused with lots of darkness and stance – and so far, they haven’t disappointed. Competently curated by respected Torreón-based DJ and producer Ricardo Medina aka Macaulay, the Mexican imprint reaches its fourteenth instalment delivered by the big boss himself.
“El Panic” EP consists of four compelling originals that showcase Ricardo’s creativity and resourcefulness when it comes to underground e-music production. From emotive and trippy cuts to uplifting and frenzy themes, the different soundscapes provided by the release focus on the ever-changing dynamics of the dance floor. Macaulay spared no efforts to bring seamlessly together his main influences to provide a New-Beat-meets-Punk-meets-Techno-meets-Indie-Dance-meets-Dark-Disco EP.
The track we chose to premiere/review, “Time”, is the most hypnotic piece of “El Panic”, the result of the imperative and eerie non-stop vocal hook that keeps saying “it is time” as if it were a mantra whose main goal is to make us lose ourselves to dance like if there was no tomorrow – something we all must be ferociously craving.
