Album Review: Rapid Fire “Dark and Techno” EP

The so no-named “Dark and Techno” EP appropriately describes the two tracks. In fact, the first track is titled “Dark” and the second track is titled “Techno”. As a result, listeners can expect especially dark vibes from the first track and a techno style sounds in the second track.


Percussive instrumentals. First a low, sputtering drum roll. Second, is a high-pitch knocking drum that plays as a top loop. Among the darker sounds are the bass stabs. One such example sounds like a vocal. It sounds like a low distorted vowel.


Overall, “Techno” is nice and steady. Dirty kick drum, bass stabs, ethereal pads, and a mysterious clap echoe are central to the mix. Lyrics speak the phrase “Dark Techno”, which is exactly the genre of the is track.

The ride is rich and metallic. As heard in the intro, it rings for a bit with each hit before fading to silence. The hi-hat, is tight and ticks away busily after the break.
