Hermanez aka Michael Coninx, Belgium born with Latin roots and heritage, has released several EP‚Äôs with us on Trapez ltd. Now he has sent us brand new music which we are very excited about.
For those who do not know him, he has been an institution when it comes to electronic dance music for more than 10 years now. Hermanez has performed on big events like Circoloco, Labyrinth and Peoples together with artists like Marco Carola, Seth Troxler, Dubfire and Reboot.
His residency at Caf√© d‚ÄôAnvers, often playing for hours, is legendary and has shaped his virtuosity.
Hermanez DJ experience certainly shows in his skill when it comes to producing music. He is capable of blending with authority, raw techno vibes with groovy percussive beats.
His EP kicks off with "Chaologic" a quite discoish timeless house tune. Hermanez keeps up the rhythm throughout the track and does it with that certain laid-back attitude occasionally throwing in some tasteful vocal snippets and sensuous breakdowns.. All done at the right time with little twists and distortion that ad patina and make it all sound organic. If that sounds too hang-loose don¬¥t be misunderstood "Chaoligic" rocks steady and with joy.
"Logarithmic" starts with a nice slow build up that creates right from the beginning enough tension to fuel the whole track before it jumps into action to throw in some nice driving percussion. We can hear some Chicago influences here, some Detroit and by keeping that balance Hermanez achieves a hypnotic state that can let people freak out! Defying gravity here at some points we know this is a track for the perfect "collective fee" in a club. This is a big one no question.
Last track of the EP "Tesla" starts with a roaring sound and rhythmic sounds in the background to create then in the course of the track a perfect deep techno house groover full of calmness and spiritual quality. Hermanez can do it all.
