Making a comeback in the limelight after a few years of mainstream disinterest, the electro scene enters a new ascending phase with a flurry of exciting records popping up in all corners of the globe. Contributing their share to the genre’s large-scale revival, Geneva-based imprint Brainwaves step up with their debut 12″ VA, ‘Caustic Dance‘, scheduled for landing April 1st.
Featuring a quintet of fast-flowing cuts from in-house talents Tout Casser, Weith, Hermeth, htn and Estebahn, this inaugural compilation from the Swiss squadron beams seriously altered sci-fi vibes and epic Detroit-style wizardry, blending Drexciyan grooves, bleepy whorls and further knee-buckling breaks in one big adrenaline shot that’s sure to turn dance floors upside down.
Lifted from this solid package of alien-developed wares, Hermeth dasher ‘Am I A Joke To You‘ cuts a path of destruction from the Swiss bank vaults straight into the heart of the club. Pulsating with a high-powered, Motor City-engineered thrust but adding its twist of broken harmonics and fluttering bleeps to make it a proper quirky banger, the track heads for further corrosive acid depths and dissolves all in its wake. Beware dancers, shockwave’s coming your way.
Caustic Dance is released via Brainwaves on 1st April, pre-order a copy from Bandcamp.
