The eponymous single from this EP is defined by its grooving bassline. For DJs, this driving foundation will make this track a go-to for building energy levels.

Overall, I’d say this track gives off a “taking acid at a sweaty warehouse rave” sort of vibe that’s all the fun, without the cliches.
Overall I was very pleased with this release from Modularz. It’s timeless, functional techno with no gimmicks or other distractions. Simple put, it’s both tasteful and useful.
“Black Propaganda” is an album which begs no contextualization. Rather, it requires forty-three minutes of your time and the entirety of your imagination. Get ready for a restless night.
