Hector & David Gtronic
Holding On EP
A1. Holding On
B2. Villa Kubu
Release date: 22nd February – vinyl, streaming & digital.
The next outing of the year from Hector’s VL Recordings imprint sees label boss and long-time sparring partner David Gtronic join forces, in what’ll be their debut collaboration on the label.
An esteemed, prominent founding member of the crew since its inception, releasing material and touring with the globally-renowned Vatos Locos events, it’ll be David’s first EP on VL Recordings since 2016 and will also follow Hector’s club-ready ‘Rogue Traders’ EP and subsequent remixes. With all ears locked into title track ‘Holding On’, Hector’s elevated reputation as a purveyor of deep, brooding cuts and Gtronic’s penchant for adventurous techno that is unmistakably present in all productions. In ‘Gabacho’, Hector and Gtronic lean into the darker sonic vibrations that quickly distinguished VL Recordings in its formative years, marking a return to the roots of the label with a track that’s as upfront as they come, custom-made for the dancefloor with an incessant, driving rhythm driven by a chunky bassline and distorted vocal intermissions. Third out the bag is ‘Villa Kubu’, a spellbinding gripper loaded with subtle textures that mesmerise and pull you into a meditative state.
