Tazz – Science Friction [NK040]

Cover art - Tazz: Science Friction

Montreal producer Tazz’s take on dance music is both powerful and quirky, characteristics that have endeared him to a wide range of fans. Pinning him down much further is a harder task. Tazz tends to lay down straight-laced, tech-house rhythms, but his growing arsenal of synth sounds lend his tracks a more experimental edge. Science Friction is his second effort for Adam Marshall’s New Kanada, and it finds him in typical form.

Tazz – Adventures Of Tazz Sampler [TSUBA057A]

TAZZ - Adventures Of Tazz Sampler (Front Cover)

With his old-skool rooted sound, Tazz has always brought tantaslising styles to Kevin Griffith’s mighty Tsuba stable. There’s something very playful about the way he sets about building tracks, not least on the square-wave bass rinsing “Giovanni’s Keys”. Let it never be said the man is cashing in on tried and tested formulas, bringing his thoroughly modern production skills to bear on tightly honed floor rockers. “Many Reason!” ups the ante further with the teasing arpeggios and chiming synths, while “Captain Groove & The Oscillators” pulls things back to show it’s not all peak-time bangers in the Tazz camp.

Tazz – Cosmic Sex [NK032]

Montreal-native Tazz delivers New Kanada three jacking and psychotic beat trax. Tazz and Bacanito unravel the threads of aggression in the lead cut ”Cosmic Sex”. Metallic heavy machine funk for those winter nights. ”Wanderer” is a late night ode to Model 500, with waves of synths burrowing into the ground to produce a dark wave classic. Cold, pure and supple. ”Mermaids and Mermen” is is the tough club killer in the package. A deep tricky dub transforms into an underwater symphony of rusted hooks and FM pad.
