2 LP version. After a three year production hiatus, Barcelona's techno kingpin Paco Osuna returns with not only a new release for Richie Hawtin's M_nus label, but also his debut LP, entitled Long Play, eight precision tracks, purposely built for the dancefloor in his inimitable style. Long Play is a meeting-point of Paco Osuna's past and his future. The product of nearly 20 years behind the decks, from early residencies at Amnesia in the late '90s, to an integral role in Hawtin's current ENTER. Events at Space and a push forward for techno, house, minimal, and tech house, Long Play's sleek and exuberant tracks are thread together by Osuna's always addictive bass lines. "The bass line is my obsession," he says the key ingredient to making picture perfect techno and playing incredible, unflaggingly energetic DJ sets. "Let's Dream" is the "perfect track for an afterhours," Osuna contends. It's followed by a divebombing bass synth that punctuates the hearty tech house thump of "Only You." "Nop Games" brings to mind Osuna's slick minimalist moments, and "Gate Scape" fills the gaps in between with a quickened pace with upbeat drums. He continues in that vein, with the insistent tick of "Pluss Bass" working for more frenzied moments. Elsewhere, Osuna takes a restrained detour on "Longituden" for a low slung dancefloor workout, and on the darker "Away from Home," he points inward for a more cerebral transitional track. Lastly, "Ying Yang" starts off sleek and laidback, but crescendos with a burst of sensuality the perfect way to tie these eight pieces together. With a lifelong dedication to making the highest quality techno, and a passion for making people move, for Osuna, Long Play is as much a look inward as a look outward to deep progressions, hard percussion, funky moods, and blissful moments of transition, all coalescing into a pure expression of his modern techno sound.
