Hailing from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Dutch artist, Tapirus a.k.a Charlton Ravenberg is no stranger to the dance music scene. Having recorded 2 singles this past year for Midnight Shift and Mord Records as Charlton, now reemerges with new single on U.S. imprint, Emphasis!ï¿½Enlightenmentï¿½ is an ethereal jacking track, taking inspiration from the Dutch and Detroit techno of yesteryear. Shuffling 707+808+909 drum sounds underneath melancholic synth pad. A string solo plays gingerly on top, sending the listener into deep space!
Finishing off side A, is ï¿½What Do You Recon,ï¿½ a bubbling, burbling acid track; twisting and warping minds on the dance floor.
ï¿½Had To Walk Away Girl,ï¿½ because sometimes you just have to. Itï¿½s not about you! Dutch techno at itï¿½s finest here. Acid bassline tweaking underneath solo synth line that meanders through the ebb and flow of your thoughts.
Rounding out the single is ï¿½Specific Epithet,ï¿½ which conjures up dark, wide spaces in the mind with itï¿½s eerie synth solo and low synth bass stabs.
