The complexity and richness of Denis Rodd’s newest EP release, Minotaur, reflects his endless curiosity and passion for music. With his roots stemming from Lanzarote (Canary Islands), Rodd’s earlier influences include jazz and funk, which eventually evolved into techno and house.
With a unique sound to the typical techno findings of Berlin, Minotaur is a mixture of robotic, tribal, and techno sounds rolled into one EP for your listening pleasure.
The title-track starts off with a familiar techno beat and picks up with multi-layered dimensions and a melodic infusion. Slow carries the multi-dimensional pace of the EP, taking us through a maze of cosmic electronic beats. The minimal vocals of this track mix a galactic vibe with one of the soul of the Earth.
Denis wraps up the EP with Charlie & The Acid Factory, delivering an upbeat, hip hop feel mixed with galactic sound waves that take us back to the 90’s and into the future all at once. Listening to this track is the next best thing to Acid tripping on a sunny day.
Minotaur EP will be released November 24 on Rodd’s self-created label, Cochlea Music.
