Since launching late last year, the Mayan Audio imprint has gone from strength to strength with a series of heavy-hitting releases from homegrown talent like Kritix and Tuff Touch. While small, independent come and go, it’s becoming more and more obvious that Mayan Audio is here to stay, especially as they drop their hottest release to date in the form of the mysteriously titled Kalima EP.
Once again featuring a crew of relative newcomers, the five-track EP is an obvious labor of love that will have neuro fans bouncing off the walls. Tuff Touch hits the thrusters into overdrive on “Lazer Eye” before Traced unleashes a stomping technoid thriller in the form of “Phobia.”
Roklo keeps the steady pressure on “The Summons” as the grinding groove gives way to a lovely little VIP of “Traction” from Kritix with Coppa once again dashing some urban flavor on top of those strychnine beats.
White Room roll things out by easing off the pedal on “Fade to White” and letting the ethereal vibes rush through. It’s an epic closing to a massively impressive EP that is sure to have heads looking twice and locking it on Mayan Audio to see what’s coming up next.
This beast is a Beatport Exclusive starting April 27 with the full release to follow on May 11, so keep your eyes and ears peeled.
