MTF005 Adrian Niculae – Consensual EP

5 MTF005 Adrian Niculae – Consensual EP Every piece of paper has its own role in the big picture of a complex collage. Every fractal structure finds the same pattern as we continue to zoom into it. Apply these facts to the echoes and reverbs wrapped around the atmosphere that resides into distant dub references and you can catch a fair glimpse from the newest Motif release. A master in applying the laws of reductionism within his signature sound, Adrian Niculae signs yet another powerful statement under the Motif vision: Consensual...

MTF003 Adrian Niculae – Fundamental LP

3 MTF003 Adrian Niculae – Fundamental LP Less than a year ago Adrian Niculae, aka Priku, released Motif 001 which was shortly followed by his second release in early spring this year. Now things are getting serious and we have 3 discs to celebrate Motif 003 as well as Adrian’s first album. 8 tracks have been carefully selected to fulfill this mission, all carrying Adrian’s acoustic legacy forward. First disc comes on side A with ‘Re Publik,’ a one dubby monster where as a more acoustic sound is revealed on side B; Vid is quite relaxed at first but the groove is still there. The hats and the snares join to make everything fall in place. The second disc draws a more melodic line with ‘E Peste Tot’ and ‘Brother John’s’ delayed synths and subtle pads. ‘Killer funk’ gets serious on side D with Adrian showing a darker yet powerful creation. Creepy reverberations complete the distant synths and catchy groove. Last but not least, the third disc includes another three amazing tracks. ‘Do I’ is as aggressive as Adrian can be on this album, stripped minimal techno at it’s best, followed by ‘Raw Beats’, a rolling mellow dubby creation. The album ends with ‘True Story’, a long and relaxed journey, combining a perfect groove and a smooth bassline with classical elements towards the end. Limited to 500 copies, 3X12”(180gr.)...

MTF001 Adrian Niculae – Acoustic Ep

1 MTF001 Adrian Niculae – Acoustic Ep Adrian Niculae, also known as Priku is one of Bucharest’s finest djs and producers. After releasing for labels like Arpiar and All Inn he has now decided to release and produce independently. Going forward, Motif will feature most of his work, as well as some of his close aquaintances. Acoustic is the name chosen for Motif 01 and ‘experiment’ is the game. Similar to his last experience with Arpiar, Bonita Mariposa is a dreamy, yet pumping track, filled with shakers and spikes that go along perfectly with the dark piano. Afterhour delight or possibly an intricate starter, it could be either of them. Marker keeps the piano but inserts more rhythm, more percussion, more mystery while micro house is blended with 808 rims and an addictive synth that will surely keep you...
