False Witness and D.Dan unleash thunder and lightning.

FALSE WITNESS doesn’t care much for escapism. Learning to DJ in their 20’s, the Brooklyn born / Berlin based producer was introduced to Nina Simone and a certain quote would become the foundation of their sonic point-of-view: “an artist’s duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times.”

‘Life Can Be Cruel’ - is as blunt as the title would suggest; clashing melodic and industrial rhythms creating a sense of big room, rolling largeness. ‘Onlyfans’ follows closely behind through the pitch-black corridors with maximalist, camp energy that feels like an aggressive ownership taking of outdated, sweeping generalisations relating to sex workers, given the relentlessness of the track and its title.

‘Bossa Bathrooms’ further compliments the hard dance appeal, its red-dot sighted lasers swarming the seemingly infinite black walls as we slip slowly towards maximum overload, while FALSE WITNESSes ode to the city he calls home - ‘NYNYNYNYNYNY’ strays down a lower BPM route, instead focusing on chugging, hypnotising synth-lines and large, controlled noise that sounds like it came straight from the pen of a chaos composer.

Accompanying the record is a digital only track from FALSE WITNESS (‘Terpsichora’, named after a Japanese mango created by Ryoko Yamagashi) and a remix from Berlin based, Mala Junta resident D.Dan, which gives ‘Life Can Be Cruel’ a renewed sense of identity, with its breaksy steps, MSN Messenger-like samples and high velocity euphoria.
