Spanish DJ and producer Psyk returns to his own NON Series with 'Opal Lake'. This 40th release on the imprint and also the first release of 2020 is a stellar four track techno pack including a collaboration with fellow Spanish producer Architectural.
Opening track 'Biting Nails' sees a new studio collaboration between the two Spanish techno legends. It's a deep and emotive jam showing a surprisingly melodic side of both producers. Title track 'Opal Lakes' is the most powerful outing on the EP, fierce and driving rhythms melting into hazy atmospheres. With its crispy snares 'Bell Tair' flips the energy with an on-point minimalistic percussion workout where 'Outline' and its deep drums acidic riffs drags you below see level into a bright and lively underwater world.
