On the Radar: Lonya – Righteousness


Tel Aviv-based producer, Lonya, drops his latest release, Righteousness, in April. The Waveform Transmitter’s Ste Knight is all ears.

Lonya Koval, or simply Lonya to quote his artist name, is back once again with an absolute hum-dinger of a record. His new EP, due for public release on April 3rd, follows on from his release on Nite Grooves in January, titled Reconcile.

Lonya‘s latest offering, which is to be released on his own imprint, Asymmetric Recordings, is a super strength techno record set to detonate all over a dance floor near you very soon. Righteousness is full on club warfare, designed to get everyone in the room throwing unimaginably contorted with great gusto. It certainly does just that – the dark, driving track is a euphoria explosion.

The ‘original’ mix of Righteousness goes in full steam ahead straight from the off. Thudding kicks reverberate round the headspace as echoed claps usher in a rising bassline that grows like a snarling beast, rising upon it’s back haunches and attacking, as trippy lead samples permeate to the front of the mix.

Luscious space-age pads and waspish synth stabs twist and tease in and out of the track as we build towards an intoxicating drop that will surely send clubbers wild. The track builds again during the second half, layering elements perfectly for a rapturous crescendo.

On the flip, Spanish producer Wally Lopez takes the track to even darker depths, adding effects to the existing textures for an altogether grittier affair.

Cracking stuff from Lonya here. Check it out, below. Just make sure you whack your volume up to eleven, close the curtains, and let loose.
