::Martin Waslewski – Maserati Syndrom::
By now a regular and important part of the Exploited Ghetto roster, Martin Waslewski has previously supplied bombs for the label such as ‘Rarara’, ‘Majaka’ and ‘Malindi‘. He’s back with another gorgeous cut here that’s set to delight clubs and festivals the world over across the summer and beyond.
A beautiful melodic techno cut, ‘Maserati Syndrom’ exudes class and grace. A nagging monotone synth hook drives away under chattering hi-hats, gradually evolving into a gently uplifting chord progression while a piano plays a languid refrain in the distance. A cute lead melody teases in the first breakdown, and the bassline drops in with the kicks thereafter. Swathes of distant pads create a cinematic atmosphere as subtle layers of percussion add to the driving feel.
The epic breakdown strips things down to bare bones, allowing the sweet main melody to take centre stage. When the beat kicks back in, the monotone intensity returns with a pared back arrangement, allowing the whole glorious soundscape to be built up once again. A gorgeous metallic arpeggio tops it all off, making the icing on this very tasty sonic cake.
