ex.sses is next up on London’s TT label with the ‘scanner’ EP. Hear the B-Side, ‘silicon’, below.
The DJ, producer and Balamii resident takes inspiration from writings on “physical sensation, material and the gendered body” to create two cuts of abstract club music. Techno-like rhythms become agitated and disjointed, while eerie melodies and shadowy synths are fleshed out with heavily altered field recordings and voice notes. This is intense, exciting music that keeps a foot firmly on the dancefloor, even when at its most intricate.
The title track is described by ex.sses as an encapsulation of the “tension between a hard metallic space and a wetspace”, while ‘silicon’ is described as “the transitory segment of the night - laying in anticipation of its inevitable climax”.
‘Scanner’ is out tomorrow, 1st September. Pre-order it here.
