Tensal is a solo project of Héctor Sandoval, a leading Spanish techno artist with an accomplished discography spanning 20 years, primarily as half of Exium. The four tracks of his ‘Opposite Inertia’ EP are each marked by the classic synth focus that defines the Tensal project, but cover separate moods within techno.
'Inertia 1' rolls out with unusual and off-kilter groove, whilst hi hats and sliding sub notes grow in intensity to the end. Inertia 2 and 3 are the peak time cuts. The first is all synth bleeps and a pumping low-end, the second more hyperactive with its flurry of tightly-wound bass and steely percussion. 'Inertia 4' brings the pace back down to a measured and more atmospheric close, tailored to the warm-up or time-out moments in a DJ set.
