Following a killer split 12” w/ Djrum for the Zenker Brother’s Ilian Tape label, new artist Struction debuts for R&S
Newcomer Struction joins the R&S family for a titanic EP of dystopian post-rave experimentation - the 4 track release, entitled ‘Gefüge’, effortlessly crystallises the best parts of R&S’s storied musical heritage without coming off like pastiche.
From the jacked menace of opener ‘Kreen’, a dizzying percussive assault of breakbeats and 808 kicks, it’s clear that Struction means business. ‘Warrior’ follows on with deep end breakbeats cut through with melancholic synth washes.
The flip side commences with ‘Ai’, all skittering percussion, swelling distorted pads and relentless kick drum thrum, while ‘Dolly’ rounds out the release in fine style, quickening the pulse with its hypnotic FM bass polyrhythms, scything cymbals and icy strings.
With this release Struction marks himself as one to watch very closely for the future, as well as once again showing R&S’s commitment to nurturing new talent, as well as releasing the best cutting edge electronic music.
