Starting out in 2001 as a mere compilation series to tie up some loose ends from our regulars, SPEICHER has since become a guarantee for vanguard dance sounds from all over the planet, allowing KOMPAKT to invite and support electronic artists that comfortably inhabit both the delicate and the more deliberate ends of the electronic music spectrum. For SPEICHER 74, best buddies RAINER WEICHHOLD and NAMITO unite under new monicker HICK HACK to bring you two utterly compelling cuts sure to beef up even the most demanding DJ set.
It’s certainly not the first time that RAINER WEICHHOLD of Kling Klong fame and well-established groove connaisseur NAMITO collaborate on high-grade floor weaponry, but there’s a strong argument to be made for HICK HACK being their finest work to date. You’ll find all the audiophile finesse and spirited deepness you come to expect from the two producers, embedded in two exuberant tracks already pawing the ground in anticipation of their deployment.
HICK gets off to a brisk and bleepy start with propelling percussion and a pumped bassdrum, exuding more of a techy vibe than its counterpart HACK, which combines mad cowbells with glitzy house stabs and tribalicious snares. As two sides of the same coin, both tracks depict perfect club chemistry and will level any playing field in a matter of nanoseconds, making this an expertly crafted double headliner more than ready for funky mayhem.
