Amongst those on the Amsterdam club scene, Tom Ruijg is highly regarded as a DJ and producer. “Skyfall” is his first 12” for Voyage Direct, following a fine contribution to the First Mission compilation back in 2015. More pertinently, the EP marks the first time he’s used the Tracey moniker for a release. Perfect balance between head-in-the-clouds melodiousness – delivered via cascading, new age influenced synthesiser motifs, starry electronics and crystalline lead lines – and serious dancefloor grunt.
Terrence Dixon returns as Population One, offering an unrivaled, dazzling excursion of late… “The Move” comes with an illustrious, energetic Orlando Voorn rework on the flip. Two esoteric portals into the Motor City mindset.
Copenhagen based conceptual music act Design A Wave returns with ‘Snakeface’, a document of surprise within the composition process. Specifically, Design A Wave uses the computer to create several beats and then utilises the mutated results as building blocks for several new compositions. Interest in computer-synthetic snakes, beyond all networks of communication and agency art, centres on placing these formless serpents into existing genres, such as music. Snakeface is a timely exploration of the infectious qualities of music, and how it too, as a carrier, makes it’s way through neural networks, irreducible to bits and designed to infiltrate and replicate.
