perc’s third album “bitter music” pushed his sound to further extremes than ever before when released in april of this year. winning widespread acclaim and launching a worldwide tour to support it. now the album returns with two eps of interpretations for a diverse selection of remixers most of whom are new to perc trax. this first ep of remixes takes in head front panel’s constantly building. pulsating version of deep album moment “the thought that counts”. hodge’s bristol meets london meets berlin stepping take on “chatter” and a screwfaced broken version of album opener “exit” by rising blackest ever black star pessimist.
perc trax completes its duo of “bitter music” remix eps with this three tracker that aims directly for the dance floor. opening up proceedings is dax j. who has enjoyed a meteoric rise over the last few years and who here serves up an irresistible take on “unelected” fueled by the driving energy his productions and sets have become famous for. next up stroboscopic artefacts boss lucy layers shifting textures over popping kick drums for a version of “wax apple” that perfectly blends form and function. lastly matrixxman. himself another of the key break out artists of the last few years. takes control of “rat run” and morphs in into a rolling drum track built on rolling toms and topped off with dubbed out elements of perc’s original mix.
the original >chained to a dead camel< is a seminal track in techno history. and is still being championed by many djs worldwide. clouds have tuned their original to create three new. alternate works. perc completes the set with his own club-ready version.
ansome returns to perc trax for his first original release since his debut album “stowaway” was released on the label in april 2016. since then he has extensively toured europe and north and south america with his ever changing modular live set as well as further establishing his south london analogue material imprint with a run of uncompromising releases.
despite decamping to berlin last year “british steel” shows there is still a no nonsense uk grittiness to ansome’s music. the frenetic rhythms reflect the pressure and paranoia of london life and for the first time his music incorporates vocals. thanks to the voice of occasional live collaborator oliver kohlenberg.
the four tracks take in everything from broken grooves to straight up dance floor face melters with a perfect balance of rhythm and texture. “poison your body” has been a highlight of perc’s recent dj sets for months now. whilst “marching powder” was featured on rebekah’s debut essential mix for bbc radio.
genosha basic artists. ghost in the machine make their perc trax debut ! full picture sleeve perc trax returns to the dance floor after the political firestorm that was perc s bitter music with the debut release on the label from the netherland s ghost in the machine. the perc and therefore perc trax name stems from the word percussion and these three drum-focused tracks sum up the label s name perfectly. rarely appearing away from their own genosha basic imprint this ep hits as hard as anything on perc trax in recent years and along with recent releases from ansome and scalameriya ushers in a new wave of artists and a distinct new chapter in the perc trax story. the holy grill commands the whole of the a-side and charges forward until a reese led breakdown gives you a moment to pause for breath. the b-side contains two percussive workouts that have enough movement and development to them to elevate them above simple drum tools. as b2 track pskdt s locked groove loops endlessly (a first for perc trax). it is clear this ep is a hard-hitting statement of intent from a duo you should be hearing a lot more on perc trax in the near future.
perc returns with bitter music . his third album on his own perc trax imprint features full printed. shrinkwrapped jacket designed by resident perc designer jonny costello of adult art club
