Techno | Mutlu San – Leidenfrost [Petra Digital]
Here we find some top flight techno and tech house courtesy of Istanbul’s Mutlu San with a fantastic remix from the legend that is John Tejada. Leidenfrost skips and swings with effortless swagger, the bassline tumbling beneath the heavy drums. This one is built for the dancefloor. Tejada switches things up a little and adds an earworm synthline to complement the weight below it. Top stuff. Get it here.
