Kling Klong fave Namito returns with his first single in a while, and thankfully there’s no sign of his usual high standards slipping.
In its Original form, Marathon builds slowly and inexorably in much the same way as a Garnier opus might, from subdued, chugging groove to a full-on workout for big dancefloors in dark rooms that’s perhaps best characterised as ‘euphoric, but in a restrained, no-need-to-get-silly-about-it kinda way’. Well, that’s the best way I can describe it anyway!
Martin Eyerer’s rework doesn’t do much dramatically different, but goes go a little sooner/more directly for the tech/prog jugular, while Peter Dundov’s pass throws in a dark rumbling bass synth line reminiscent of Josh Wink, plus some spangy toplines worthy of Orbital.
You getting the idea here? If you’re gonna make big room techno, then doing so in such a fashion as to pick up Garnier, Wink and Orbital comparisons isn’t a bad way to go about it…
Out: This week
About: Kling Klong is of course part of the Great Stuff family and needs little introduction, having had plenty of love on this blog before now! But here’s their website anyway and, so you can HEAR THIS, their Soundcloud as well.
