Making a threateningly potent debut on Osàre! Editions as The Spy, Wessel Janssen combines classic boot-stomping techno with cybernetic groove, jittery IDM and sinister electro. Crackling, liquid synth, as slick on oil on water, channels the potency of club dancefloors through a gripping conceptual underpinning. Capturing fugitives on the run from a mysterious axis power, the mini LP is an action-packed adrenaline buzz.
Launching off with ‘Cobra,’ the momentous opening track sets the steely tone of the record. ‘Time to Strike’ stabs with polymorphic, stuttering beats, while ‘Never Again’ wields the high-drama of an urgent getaway. Screeching like a security system gone haywire, ‘Cigarette’ is set ablaze by J.C.’s monstrous vocals.
Think The Matrix, Mission Impossible and 007, but for dark, pounding basements devoid of time.
