Foremost French techno label Family Piknik Music returns with more big hitting tunes. This time out it’s Cadillac Express, Evgeniy Nuzhnov and NOREQUEST who serve up two standout originals with a remix from the label boss. 

Ritual (Original Mix) comes racing out of the blocks with a nice sleek drum and bass combo that is run through with pixelated pads and frazzled arps. The steely drums drive it on and get you in a trance. Ritual (Tom Pooks & Joy Kitikonti Remix) is a brilliant take on the original that shimmies along on chunky drums with plenty of well designed and progressive melodies up top.

Dark Means Disco is a big tune with chunky drums and slap funk bass. There are lots of extra fills, details and FX that add real cinematic tension as the groove rolls on, making it another vital offering from this fine label.
