Currently carving their own signature into the dense, sprawling techno landscape with Second State Audio, the German two-man-machine that is Pan-Pot take a breather from their own label Second State and apply their slick dancefloor science to Nicole Moudaber's MOOD imprint. And while the titles might enjoy a light-hearted play on words, the sounds themselves are straight-up peak time, no-messing techno constructions.
"Win Some" is the ultimate DJ jewel: laced clever layers of percussion and a pneumatic sub/kick relationship, this just rolls and rolls into infinity with heads-down energy and a dynamic that's ideal for deep, deep mix blends.
"Lose Some" plays the perfect foil as it chats with a slightly housier sonic syntax before going absolutely loco midway with a paranoid synth scribble that disappears as quickly as it flashes into the mix, creating that trippy blink-and-miss sensation that electrify the best sets when precision dropped.
Win some, lose some… The perfect Techno yin and yang, the ultimate balance of shades and, just maybe, an allegory for life itself: Everything goes up and down, our experience on this planet is in a constant state of flux. However you wish to interpret their concept, be sure to dig deep and reflect life's rich balance with these two on-point MOOD-release gems. Enjoy!
