L.I.E.S. presents a new three track ep by Los Angeles producer Silent Servant. Known for his previous work with techno outfit Sandwell District, Juan Mendez, since the dissolve of the group has tapped into his formative new wave/post punk and early electronic influences effectively applying them to his recent productions to create an engaging amalgamation of modern dance music. Across this ep the sounds of Bleep, EBM, and even Minimal Synth are all present…from deep floor movers to jagged edged 150 bpm skankers, Mendez through these last years has been responsible for opening up minds on the floor and this ep proves to be a testament of such.
EGR45-00003 features Silent Servant, a DJ and producer whose gloomy rhythms stay with the listener long after the music has faded out. These two brand new tracks, along with a live excerpt, are gritty, hyper-engaging and highly personal takes on techno.
