Pre order: Soon at Beatport

B.Riley is making it happen with his brand-new imprint CMND CTRL, and announced the arrival of the second release, a fabulous 3-track EP featuring seductive percussions, dark beats and hypnotic synths. Entitled ‘CMND CTRL 002‘, the release also includes a remix by the Berlin based Techno wizard Ray Kajioka. The EP is going to be out in september, stay tuned. Full details below.  

CMND CTRL is a brand-new imprint from Miami Florida based producer Brandon Riley. Dedicated to musical expression, immersion, technology, and innovation, we present to you CMND CTRL 002.

The CMND CTRL sound will focus mainly on the Techno and Tech House related genres, and on this second release (CTRL002) we dive into a darker, more tribal and hypnotic style of Techno.

King Snake lays the groundwork with its booming kick drum, seductive percussion, and hypnotic synth overtones that continuously rise and fall throughout the mix. A relentlessly driving track perfect for that late night DJ session.

King Snake (Ray Kajioka Remix) Berlin based Techno wizard Ray Kajioka takes the reigns on this release’s remix duties and delivers a fast-paced take on the original mix. Ray’s production abilities are on full display with this remix as he rains down wild high hats and percussions matched with a steady kick and well-timed synth stabs. A guaranteed crowd pleaser.

The Passage brings a bit more of a dark and dreamy style mix to the dancefloor with some well-placed percussion giving this track a mysterious tribal techno vibe. Warm sounding sonic textures playout through the mix, with a nice pulsing analogue synth hook driving the main part of the track. Definitely a strong track to build up a crowd with.
