Describing 'Recoded' as a "steaming cut made for the peak-time, propelled by crunchy drums, a head-scrambling vocal, and plenty of eerie effects to ensure impact," the duo sets the stage for an electrifying experience. Each track is meticulously crafted to deliver a distinct flavour while maintaining a cohesive narrative throughout the EP.

In an exclusive interview, Oscar Escapa and Linear Phase shed light on the genesis of their collaboration and the creative process behind 'Recoded'. When asked about the driving force behind the EP, Oscar Escapa reflects on their lifelong friendship and shared passion for music. "We always got together to hang out and work, and magic arose," he remarks.

As Linear Phase explains, their artistic visions seamlessly merge: "We merge our ways of working... from that union, we manage to unite two very different styles always very focused on the dance floor." This synergy is evident in each track, where hardware meets software and commercial meets underground, resulting in a harmonious blend that defies genre boundaries.

Navigating the distinct techno identity of Drumcode, the duo credits label head Adam Beyer for allowing them to showcase their work. Linear Phase remarks, "We didn't know if it would fit, but from here, we thank Adam Beyer for giving us the opportunity." Their ability to blend their unique styles while staying true to the label's sonic signature speaks volumes about their versatility and creativity.

'Recoded' isn't just another EP; it's a testament to techno's evolution, honouring its roots while pushing boundaries.
