We gladly welcome one of German’s notable new names in the techno scene. You might know Patrik Berg from his earlier releases on labels like Tronic and Alleanza. The magic duo Loco & Jam are on board for the remix.

 

The EP kicks off with the title track Running Numbers. Atmospheric synth swell and fade away while the hypnotic, repetitive synth sets its groovy sequence. A monstrous bass drum combined with tight hats and cymbal rides create some substantial impact on the dance floor. A mechanical arpeggiated synth sets the perfect mood for the outstanding vocal; an absolute A-side bomb by Berg.

 

The second track is the Loco & Jam remix of White Armour. True to their signature style the tracks opens with a fat kick and crispy, well placed drums. Gradually through filtered stabs and reverberated vocal snippets, a dreamy, distant, memorable synth line. The break ends with understatement, making the build not too obvious, leaving room for all the elements to come together nearing the end of the track. Their remix for Patrik Berg is definitely one of Loco & Jam’s stronger works to date.

 

The EP continues with Lovely Vicious. A stripped back clear groove sets the basis for acidic synth stabs and well placed reverberated synthetic chords. The chords unfold into pads that swell during the first half of the track. Magically the main acid hook arises from this pad, switching the track into to next gear after the break. Hypnotic and heavy hitting at the same time.

 

We finalise Running Numbers EP with the original mix of White Armour. Berg’s typical groove is supplemented by a clear, classy clap. The interplay between the background stabs, synth chords and vocals create a magical, soothing atmosphere, topped off by a colossal main theme.
