Rocky Valente – The Revolution on Elevate – Techno


Label: Elevate

Release date: OUT NOW

The first of two posts in the next week about the excellent Portuguese DJ | Producer phenomenon Rocky Valente. It is great to see her release her latest on Elevate. Her best EP to date in our opinion, a multi-talented woman in techno being appreciated for how she rocks a crowd and also for her slick minimal production skills. Keep your eyes out for an in-depth interview we will share next week about what she’s been up to, but in the meantime check what Pig and Dan’s label had to say about their latest release, the links are below to hear her blistering new beats.

The Label explains:

Rocky Valente dishes up a three-track EP of varying techno feels on Pig & Dan’s ELEVATE imprint, featuring a high-octane rework from Mark Reeve.

The Amsterdam-based DJ | Producer has kicked off 2020 in her signature flamboyant style. Still riding the success of her ‘Rebirth’ EP, which charted at No.3 on Beatport’s techno chart at the end of last year, Rocky let rip a live stream from a palace in her home city of Lisbon, to an ecstatic reception. She plans more shows for other off the wall venues, so watch this space.

Rocky Valente - The Revolution

For this EP, she strides through the A-side with a 4/4 driving peak time monster entitled ‘The Revolution’. Shuffling hi-hats over a tight, rolling kick drum provide pace while reverberating synths and subtle basslines fill the track right to the roof. ‘Anxiety’ features the dubby soundscapes often associated with deep Berlin dub-techno. The filtering echoes contrast the hard panning of the chord riff, all locked in by her distinctive drum loops.

Mark Reeve remixes the A, providing an up-tempo driver that fills the sonic spectrum with crisp percussive drums and oscillating basslines. The huge melodic lines chime in to bring forward a cavernous breakdown to stop dancers in their tracks before throwing them back into his deep grooves.
