Dutch duo Diction are undeniably designated for the big room, taking their education from the legendary Awakenings festival which always comprises of the elite big room techno DJs that they idolise! The guys monstrously powerful techno eminates groove and understanding for a huge space and crowd! This is evident in the title track 'Ultimatum', huge rolling drums and bass are encompassed by a nod-to-the-90's synth stab, crystalesque ambience and an impatient female vocal! Their second track 'General Store' goes even darker, a grotesquely huge drumline is yet again surrounded by well laid out stabs, low-octaved vocals and atmospherics and their thoughtfulness in the breakdowns leaves you clucking for that drop! On remix duties we think we've done the Diction boys justice with two recent heavyweights of techno! Manchester's Nik Feral [1605/MUM] turns in what he's becoming renowned for, a clinically sharp thumper! Maintaining the power in the drumline he's sympathetically structured a minimal perc line and washed that 90's-esque synth and vocal subtly through enigmatic drops! And London local Chicago Loop [Respekt/Keep On Techno] brings even more drive and roll to his offering. A solid clap-and-slap flows throughout with bass that thuds under a thrusting restructuring of the synth line, whilst a delayed re-use of the vocals dictates throughout. Good luck on choosing your favourite!
