Vienna calling! These days we see the Austrian, Salzburg-born producer Ken Hayakawa unleash his label debut ''War Drums'' via Upon.You Records, a first for the classically trained ex-skater who has left his mark on various electronic music imprints like Schönbrunner Perlen, Liebe.Detail, Kaato Music and many others in the past. The original version of ''War Drum'', the title singles track, is a fascinating one from the very start, presenting a wobbly, ever shifting, meandering synth melody which keeps our senses busy with a lot of stereo field wizzardry accompanied by intense Spoken Word poetry and a beautifully arranged bassline - a combination which makes this one stick out and defo works in favor of ''War Drums'' gaining a future classic status immediately after its release. With ''Frozen'', the second original track on Ken Hayakawa's label debut, the artist provides a warm and organic take on rolling TechHouse basslines, garnished with what seem to be waves washing ashore, carefully layered string sequences and a Trance-inducing main motif preparing crowds and dancefloors for an ultimate lift-off. Furthermore we see ''War Drums'' being remixed by theJapanese mainstay that is Hiroshi Watanabe, also known as Kaito to many, who is presenting a very distinct take on the tune with his version which caters a carefully balanced mixture of pumping, precisely compressed bassdrums, technoid synth sequences and Ambient-resembling, slowly floating harmonies falling together in a 'troity, highly captivating way that combines pure dancefloor functionality and well thought out musicality to an epic, even cinematic effect.
