Boris Brejcha returns to Ultra Records for the second time since his Space Diver album, further cementing his kinetic techno sound in the global scene with the effortlessly salient Thunderstorm EP.
The release features four new tracks, which together showcase a producer who’s developed a true mastery of his toolset, an attribute that allows Brejcha to create with more flow and fewer inhibitions. The title track on Thunderstorm may not have made the aforementioned Space Diver tracklist, but has been a certified crowd slayer up Brejcha’s sleeve for the past few years, showing up in both his 2018 Tomorrowland set and his more recent Cercle show.
“Awakening” follows as one of the lesser known releases on the EP, but serves as a follow-up to Brejacha’s coveted 2013 B-side, “Angel In The Sky,” fusing the producer’s more recent bass-centric sound with a familiar celestial melodies. The EP also features “Nothing Seems To Be,” sought after track for fans of the German beatsmith, and for good reason, as it manages to bring the modern techno sound closer to an arena anthem than anyone in recent memory.
