We’ve been trying to come up with an appropriate beverage to accompany an evening listening to Nej!Las (her name is a semi-reversal of her given name of Jen Sal), an American techno artist creating complex sonic vistas with magical machines. It’s hypnotic, slightly sinister and utterly overwhelming stuff and requires multiple listens to really get to grips with it…in a good way, it’s music that just keeps on giving. We recommend your Washout listening sessions to be accompanied by an appropriate brew which not only inspires but also numbs and and causes mild delirium. Please enjoy your tot of everclear responsibly – the music is chilling enough without setting yourself on fire.
Having already released a 12” on Ambivalent’s new Valence imprint and featured on the latest Innervisions ‘Secret Weapons’ compilation this year, GoldFFinch now return to Tiga’s Turbo Recordings with their new EP, ‘Unworthy’.
Three tracks of tight, lean Techno that ranges from the ominous title track, all pulsing tones and drones and swirling arpeggios, through to the claustrophobic sub-aquatic Techno of ‘Brother’ and onto the martial kick drums and discordant bleeps of ‘Layers’. Meanwhile on the remix front, Sunju Hargun, fresh off his collab with Forrest on Twin Turbo, and Crosstown’s Fur Coat provide the big room reinforcements with new versions of ‘Unworthy’.
Having released critically acclaimed music on some of the best underground House and Techno labels around, including Numbers, Dirtybird, Black Butter, Innervisions and Turbo, GoldFFinch have proven themselves to be more than worthy to carry on the torch of Belgium’s rich history of electronic music.
