Since the early-’90s, Developer (a.k.a. Adrian Sandoval) has held down LA’s techno scene as a producer and a DJ. More recently, he’s also expanded his talents into maintaining and running the Modularz label, but with the label’s newest offering, simply titled Modularz 8, Sandoval demonstrates that he hasn’t lost his productorial touch. Take from the record’s b-side, Developer’s “Dirty Drive 1” is a bold, monolithic slice of deep techno that showcases subterranean atmospherics coupled with relentlessly propulsive rhythms. When Modularz 8 drops in vinyl format on July 20 (it’ll drop digitally a week later), you can also expect to hear contributions by other Modularz signees, such as remixes by Markus Suckut and Jonas Kopp as well as original tracks by Stanislav Tolkachev and Truncate. You can preview both sides of the double-12″ Modularz 8, after the jump.
