Truss - Ganymede [Perc Trax 055]
It's time for a new release from our favourite London based label, Perc Trax, by one of our previous Slash Dot Dash guests, Truss. It's first appearance on the label from the Welsh born, London based producer since his 2010 'Osbasten' EP. Inbetween he's had great success, most notably, with his EP on Sigha's Our Circula Sound label as well as remixes for Perc (with Sigha) and the debut release for our friends over at EarToGround.
'Ganymede' displays just how far Truss has come since his last Perc Trax EP. Using his extensive knowledge of the history of techno to combine that with modern methods and idealism's to create something fresh and original. The title track is a minimalist bass heavy thumper which encompasses Truss signature acid stylings. His second offering 'Hackney' is an uncompromising throw back to the illegal East London raves. Stripped down to it's bare bones, it's acid rhythms provide an accurate representation of the state of UK techno.
Remixes come from label boss, Perc, and rising techno star, with labels like Horizontal Ground and Semantica, Skirt. On 'Ganymede' Perc adds layers of organic percussion where as skirt takes us on a more deeper atmospheric trip. Check out the samples below
