Los Angeles-based artist False Witness drops three rapturous cuts on E-Missions EP entitled ‘Red Curtain Daybreak’, featuring a deadly remix from Berlin’s Henning Baer.
Real name Marco Gomez, False Witness is an artist, producer and DJ from Boston who’s spent recent years making a name for themselves in New York as a respected resident at Venus X’s iconic club night, GHE20G0TH1K; their own monthly series at Bossa Nova Civic named In The Dark; not to mention releases on labels like Bastard Brigade and Lit City Trax. An artist creating genre defying dance music, False Witness now appears E-Missions, joining a varied roster of quality artists such as Rush Plus, Tred, CYD, as well as label co-founders P.Leone and Caiazzo.
Featuring three very different sounding originals, ‘Red Curtain Daybreak’ sets out to soundtrack Gomez's experience of the new light and space movement within the Brooklyn underground. The title track is a fast and furious techno roller with relentless drums and a hypnotic lead. Named after Lauren Berlant’s constitutive theoretical work on neoliberal desire, ‘Cruel Optimism’ offers respite from the chaos with a contemplative projection of post-euphoria.
On the flip, ‘Devil May Cry’ reworks the same elements of ‘Red Curtain Daybreak’ into a peaktime techno roller with a sinister bassline. Finally, German producer Henning Baer concludes matters with a hypnotic remix of ‘Devil May Cry’ featuring a captivating rhythmic arrangement.
