Ivan Arnau (Djax Up Beats, Omniamm, F.B.I Recordings) strikes back on Boris Divider's label! After a remarkable participation on the "Micro Driver" project, the Spanish artist signs a complete 12'', in the prolongation of his previous "My Left Side EP", published lately on Dona-Li Records. Rich in melodies, "Net Adikted" delivers three magnificent electro breakaways, starting by the A side longplayer. Served by a brilliant rhythmic, the cut constructs slowly its melancholic atmosphere, relying on Detroit style synthesizer strings. More synthetic, "Cyan" offers on the flip a wonderful old-school work, enhanced by Krusokane vocodered lyrics. At last, "Sempre Es El Mateix" ventures in futuristic lands, alternating metallic pads and minimal effects. Retro and modern at the same time!
