EP review: Onyvaa – Lost Angeles

Memorable record labels have an identity, a sense of consistency that ties everything together. You don’t need to like everything on that label, but you should at least comprehend what it stands for and what it delivers.
The KNTXT label doesn’t venture far, but it delivers what it does extremely well.

Onyvaa is the latest DJ to feature, and her Lost Angeles EP ticks all the boxes for lovers of punishing yet pleasing techno. If you are looking for techno that is too well-mannered for the hardcore and yet too brutal for your grandparents, you’re in the right place.

The four tracks are hard, melodic and will leave you pining for sweaty moments in poorly-lit basements. Places that sound horrible when described, but which are magical when encountered. ‘Lucid’ practically skips with indecent haste, but there’s barely a misplaced step on this collection of murky monsters.

Lost Angeles was released on 19th February on KNTXT
