This is unquestionable some of the heaviest material released on Warm-Up, dating all the way back to the days of Mulero's "Implant" and "46" records. There is nothing easy going about this one either. Built around off-key electronic loops, unsettling techno grooves, old schoolish siren bleeps and booming kick-drum led rhythms, this is like a Tresor vault series release, and I mean that as a real compliment. The A side pieces pound away with firm menace and boisterous drive. The inner cut is particularly impressive, with high-end crashes during the tune's more intense moment. For purists, and the older lovers of mid nineties german and UK techno sound and movement.
Despite the fact that at times - unfortunately - it may seem that Oscar Mulero is remixing everyone and their brother these days, he fully delivers on both of Sleeparchive's pounders, and there is a lot to live up to. The outer cut is a tornado of sounds, going absolutely berserk halfway deep, with some menacing woodchipper effects descending upon those drums just waiting to break loose. The other remix is one the more familiar spaced out tip Mulero tends to follow these days, but he still hits home run with reverberating metallic claps and incessant spherical drops revolving around the shuffling beat.
In a nut shell, you have four floor crushing numbers over this circular piece of wax, and it doesn't really matter which one you single out, as any of these four will absolutely obliterate the dance podium. Easily my favorite Warm-Up release of the past two years or so. Maybe not for its originality, but for its blazing balls out approach.
