With slew of -hitting releases clocked on the on the likes of Perfekt Groove, Infekted , Biotech Recordings, Krafted Underground and Beenoise Records over the course of his career, hotly-tipped French techno talent and Panik label boss, Portax, returns to his burgeoning imprint for the first juggernaut release of 2021, with A Lucid Dream.

via Panik, A Lucid Dream is everything we come to expect and more from the French artist, who has been going from strength to strength with each passing release since he burst on to the scene back in 2019.

Igniting the record in trademark Portax style, the intro sees the in-form producer deliver an combination of mind-bending synthesisers and gradually building percussion, before making way for an of pounding kick drums. A thunderous backdrop to the mesmerising vocal and syncopated hi-hats that tantalisingly creep in, the record reaches its first peak with the of a immense synth refrain at two minutes, which sets the tone for the remainder of the release.

With the record now in full swing, expertly layered percussion and throbbing lower end continue to rain down with fierce intensity across the duration of the record, as Portax perfectly manipulates the energy with tension filled breakdowns until the close, to round off yet another huge release on his budding imprint, Panik.

Speaking about the release Portax commented:

“My mission on this production was to to the public my own vision/sensation of a lucid dream; a mix a nightmare and the perfect dream, where everything is possible”.

Portax – A Lucid Dream is out now via Panik.
