On our constant lookout for the best and the finest, Tic Tac Toe Records touched down in our favourite European city Barcelona and hooked up with Oliver Henares aka Swat Squad.
Swat Squad has been around for more than 4 years and with releases on such influential labels as Trapez, Treibstoff, Frankie, Gastspiel, Resopal and his own PulseWith among others, Oliver has firmly established himself in the minimal-techno neighbourhood.
This three-track burner for Tic Tac Toe is no exception.
The booomb track is the A side, Prototype. Super powerful minimal techno that blows off the roof everywhere we’re playing this track. When Swat Squad finishes his livesets with this tune, the crowd always explodes into frenzy!
Two tracks on the B side:
Atomic Lighter is a stealth bomber. A bit more laidback until it explodes in the middle of the track and gets more intense and aggressive.
Last track on the record is Red Cat, and this surely is a red cat dancing on the hot rooftop under the summer sky of Barcelona. Bouncing, minimal, techno’ish boogie woogie, that keeps building and building.
Another smasher from Swat Squad.
