  • Evocative, leftfield breaks.

  • A quick browse of Plaza's Bandcamp confirms that driving, emotive techno is their ethos. Dublin-based producer Tyvion Valentine is a key weapon in that arsenal, adept at bringing the soul without sacrificing momentum. On "Essence," breaks pitter-patter while springy synths glide like sirens. It bounces around the room and reverberates in the skull when heard through speakers. Between the heavenly choral pads and ghostly vocal samples, "Essence" is cold yet cathartic, sort of like dancing in the rain.
