Slovenia-based Borut Margon is a good example of a relative unknown with a straightforward sound that couldn't go overlooked. Now signed to Wavetec and also featured on Francois K's new Frequencies CD, Borut is set to make an impact on dancefloors around the globe with his funky, energetic tech sound.

Although he started out producing house music, an introduction to tracks made by Johannes Heil and Andreas Muegge led him to create more melodic tech-house. This influence shows through from the beginning of the "Year Before Present EP," his first single on Wavetec. "Gya" takes tech-house further with chunky hi hat line that keeps bodies grooving irresistibly, riding alongside a subtle, yet signature tuba horn riff.

The EP is diverse and sets Borut apart from Slovenian contemporaries UMEK and Valentino Canzyani, but you can certainly tell they are from the same school of swimmers. Track 2 "Fortnight" is most reminiscent of the minimal techno he grew up listening to in the 90s, like Aril Brikha or Derrick May. The track is more about subtleties though, with sweeping sounds bubbling just beneath all the action it will leave you wanting to hear more of those sounds, which he gives in bountiful proportions yet never congesting the track.

Third track "Hyperfine Transition" blends warm electro snares with some more of Moraon's ever-present melodies, creates a perfectly blended sound where not one of the sounds detracts from the overall feeling. It's a summery, melodic, techno synthesis that has to be heard to believe. Finally, "Positive Numbers" combines a 2-step percussion with 4/4 beats for a track that would sound right at home being played by Carl Cox or Sven Vath. The cascading beatdown never felt so good, and sounds even better when Borut goes berserk with the electronic noises. Pure energy.
