Sincopat welcomes back one of its brightest stars, AFFKT, for a piece that oozes ‘True Power.’ It’s a deep, melodic groover, and one of the Spanish talent’s most progressive to date — almost in the vein of Guy J and other purveyors of this sound. AFFKT uses a slow build in “True Power,” starting off with driving pings of synth and a prominent bassline before slowly adding in analog melodies and underlying arpeggios. By the time it reaches its peak, the tune already has the listener completely locked in and stuck in a welcome trance.
“True Power” is the first original release we’ve heard from the dance stalwart in half a year; prior to his return to Sincopat, AFFKT explored the heavier side of his artistry on Octopus with “Tempus Fugit.” As he continues to capture the eardrums and hearts of the melodic and techno communities at large, we suspect he’s in for quite a powerful 2019.
