After starting out with a "deep, emotional and energetic mix series" to showcase his production skills, Evgeniy Savchenko caught the ears of many. Then, under his Rytek production guise, the Russian from Krasnodar near the Black Sea, began to make waves after a clutch of releases in 2011. With the bulk of these coming on Erich Von Kollar's impressive Stellar Fountain imprint, it was on the "Ritma" EP in November 2011 that Rytek first came to the attention of Proton head honcho, Jay Epoch with, "The First Class". This brooding, progressive track with head-turning rhythms saw a relationship forged with the Particles label that first bore fruit with the hypnotic rhythms of Rytek's remix of Kobana and Mario Hatchet's "Move Back" for the label in Autumn 2012.
Now as the seasons begin to change, Particles is delighted to announce Ryek's first full release on Particles with his "Sector 7" EP. Exhibiting a passion for "musical research and experimentation", Evgeniy has continued his exquisite rhythmic sensibilities with a flowing and hypnotic rhythmic gem. The title track skips purposefully along with a pulsating bass line acting as driving force alongside a dominant kick drum. Simultaneously, reverb-laden effects criss-cross around the stereo spectrum while sustained pads and distorted synth-line keep the tension high in the breakdown before unleashing once more into the pulsing, rhythmic and bass filled broth.
"101 Last Days" has an immediately lighter feel to its EP counterpart as light and airy pads give a sense of space and texture, combined with carefully constructed and modulated melodic riff. Nevertheless, Rytek's strong sense of rhythm is never far from the surface and, as the melodies play out and the track reaches its final movement, the strong rhythms that dominate the title track are once again in evidence here.
As "Sector 7" has proved, Rytek's immaculate sense of rhythm and groove would ensure "101 Last Days" provide a party of epic proportion.
