Florian Meindl “What Is Techno” Via Flash Recordings


Florian Meindl stays busy. In addition to scoring films and advertisements, writing for audio production magazines and creating endless sound banks for sample libraries, the 24-year-old Austrian runs Flash Recordings and produces stand out tech house. Jack of all trades, Master of None? Apparently the adage doesn't hold true here.

“What is Techno” is a funky groover with superb production—smooth and round and big everything. Though it isn't necessarily the most courageously innovative track, it feels and sounds excellent and would easily fit in a tasteful house or techno set. The remix from Shadow Dancer (Boysnoize Records veterans) is a bit more dark and aggressive, emphasis on growling acidy baselines and stiff snare rolls.

The flip, “Good Times” is also delightful, a really useful track encouraging the listener to “let the good times roll, roll, roll” (layers of pitched-down masculine insistence). A rich DJ tool with great percussion sounds and metallic stabs building into a pumping crescendo. Club hits, surely.
