Adapter – Gain
Naples native Antonio Russo aka Adapter joins the Desolat family with a sublime four track EP entitled ‘Gain’. With previous outings on the likes of Get Physical, Octopus, VIVa, and now Materialism, the now Berlin based producer appears to be in a rich vein of form, with his next EP on Desolat pushing him further into the limelight.
A-side ‘Gain’ is a warbling peak time builder. A perfect combination of thudding techno bass, driving drums licks, and intricate and delicate synths. You can see why Loco Dice is a big fan of Adapter with this one. The ethereal breakdown will certainly give that all important dance-floor respite, before proceedings kick back twice as hard.
‘Boomshake’ is a rasping, percussive, tech-house weapon that is sure to be utilized throughout the coming months. It’s long arching build ups give way to highly functional plateaus that will be well received by plarty goers.
‘Knockout’ is a jacky, staccato, hypnotic track that will allow DJs to take things a little left of center when the time is right.
