Christian Smith and Drunken Kong drop exhilarating new techno track 'Succession'

Christian Smith Drunken Kong

Christian Smith and Drunken Kong are two well-respected names within the international techno scene, and they have teamed up to collaborate on an exhilarating new track called "Succession."

"Succession" combines both of their peak time styles within its electrifying synth line, ominous vocals and thundering percussion that will shake any dance floor to its foundations.

Drunken Kong are a Japanese duo known for their music on highly respected record labels such as Drumcode, Terminal M and Octopus. Christian Smith is a Swedish artist who since the ‘90s, has released cutting-edge techno via his own imprint Tronic, and others ranging from Drumcode to We Are The Brave.

This isn’t the first time these producers have worked together, as they have previously joined forces on Christian Smith’s Tronic, but this release comes via Spanish record label, CODE Records.

CODE Records is a Spanish label linked to the CODE parties that run at the Fabrik nightclub in Madrid, where they book DJs ranging from Carl Cox and Amelie Lens to Ben Klock and Blawan. The record label and events series are both run by Cesar Almena and Nuke who are also skilled music producers and resident DJs at CODE.

Cesar Almena has released stomping techno tracks on labels including Naked Lunch, and he provides a stripped-back version of Succession that’s built around a breakbeat groove. Nuke has featured his music on other imprints ranging from Odd Recordings to MB Elektronics, and his remix adds a new hypnotising synth line and high-speed percussion to create a mesmerising groove with relentless energy.

The next CODE event takes place on Saturday the 2nd of September at Fabrik in Madrid, and features an impressive line-up including headliners Chris Liebing, Regal, Reinier Zonneveld, Rebekah, Robert Hood, Rudosa, and more.
