First Listen: Oscar Mulero – ‘Crux’ (Semantica)

Spanish techno veteran Oscar Mulero has the credentials. After starting his DJ career in the late 80s, he established the legendary Omen Club in Madrid and went on to found both Warm Up Recordings and notable offshoot Pole Recordings.

Cut to decades later and he’s still doing his thing, having released productions and remixes through imprints such as Coda, Pure Plastic, Tresor, Tsunami and Main Out.

In advance of a new album on Semantica, Oscar’s bringing in the new year with Acceptance, a six-track EP that’s said to be “low in tempos and deep in mental approach” – a fitting description for our exclusive premiere taken from the record, ‘Crux’. Taking cues from early dubstep, ‘Crux’ sees Mulero abandoning rapid tempos in favour of ghostly atmospheres and negative space.

Acceptance is out January 26 on Semantica. Pre-order here.
