Around the world, artists and their respective crews/imprints are agitating against what's normal to listen to in 'the club'.
There's the ATM squad in Philly, New York's Purple Tape Pedigree, Gage in Bristol, Air Max '97 in Melbourne, the cross-country NON collective... The list could go on, naming an international network of people dedicated to reconfiguring dance music.
Ziúr co-runs the BOO HOO party in Berlin with Joey Hansom and has been quietly making tracks that can be described, simply, as thrilling. Her mutations blenderise hunks of techno, trance and noise and can be placed among the aforementioned club-not-club wave, though her productions sound like little else out there.
It arrives via Montréal-via-Mexico City label Infinite Machine, which has recently been tapping into the strangest corners of club music (WWWINGS, for instance), and bears four original tracks as well as remixes from Air Max '97 and Born In Flamez. It's an intense record and a pretty unique opening salvo from an artist you definitely need to know about.
The 'Taiga' EP lands on July 1 via Infinite Machine
