There’s only so much buoyant nu-disco one can take before an inevitable descent into darkness. On “Nite,” Volta Bureau member Will Eastman introduces his brooding Pentamon project in fitting fashion. His debut single represents a relentless brand of subterranean techno that recalls Adam Beyer and his Drumcode legion with its sparse percussion, pounding kick and eerie atmospheric elements. Pentamon’s production prowess really shines on the track’s intricate and menacing builds which give way to esoteric vocal samples and a delightfully unyielding bass line. As the co-owner of Washington underground mecca U Street Music Hall, Eastman knows a thing or two about the darker side of techno, so expect plenty more in this vein from the seasoned producer.
