We are huge fans of the Dutch maestros TWR72 and the relentless quality of their imprint that goes by the name of Float Records.
Check out the first half of this double pack Reflect (Part 1) that included Developer, Kwartz and Myk Derill. It’s an honour to select this original track from the guys themselves on the next instalment that enlists Markus Suckut, Samuli Kemppi and A001 on remix duty.
“Response” is a whirlwind of intensity and manic power. Crunchy kicks and rough textures filling the mix get this gem going, where the synth stabs and siren-esque squeals make this a monstrous beast. Haunting organs and a tom drum providing an obscure ‘tick tock’ at the final break finish it off with great suspense.

Q&A with TWR72
> 01. What was the thinking behind this track and did you achieve what you set out?
Actually this track was a sort of follow up for ‘Balance.’ It was intended to sound a bit similar but with an improved character. As you can hear, the processing of the main synth is pretty much the same, but the sound on Response is a bit warmer. The overall feel is also a bit more aggressive. We were busy with a new working method at the time on how to process our sounds to give it more character and depth. Sound wise but also the rhythm of the sound. We can say that we achieved some goals on this track, but with every track we produce it’s always a surprise where it ends up.
> 02. What tips and advice can you share to any producers on shaping their own sound?
Be experimental, because there are no rules.
> 03. What is your go to track at the moment by another artist?
This a good opportunity to use some shameless promotion for our own imprint Float Records. As label owners we have the possibility to create a platform for the music we love. And there are a million ways to run a label and there are millions of decisions you can make. We feel that the Techno scene is extending in a good way and we’re trying to contribute in the development of it by giving talented producers a chance. We recently signed Fisssh and Kuf which is going pretty well. The upcoming release is by Altinbas. He did a track called “Imminent Probe” and although it’s a pretty basic track, it worked every time we played it. It was and still is our secret weapon in every set.
