Following on from smash releases on Toolroom and Stereo earlier this year, Rafa Barrios is enlisted by the Solardo lads for a punchy tech-house record in the form of the Flipflop EP, out now via Sola.
A two-track belter, the Flipflop EP boasts hypnotic sound constructions and rolling basslines. Lead track Flipflop picks up the pace with wandering drums and peppy percussion. Meanwhile, Broend combines looped textures with a foreign vocal and 303 inspired pulses.
One listen to this EP and it’s clear why the likes of Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Dubfire and Marco Carola continue to support Rafa Barrios’ work. Hailing from Spain, Rafa Barrios has built his name through deep, tech house cuts that have resonated globally with releases on the likes of Toolroom, Blackflag and Tronic while playing at a variety of festivals and events including Pacha, Elrow, Café Mambo at ADE, Igloofest and BPM Festival to name just a few.
Continuing to rise above the ranks and cement himself amongst the underground heavyweights, the Flipflop EP marks exciting times ahead for Rafa Barrios.
