About this item
Acclaimed Copenhagen-based DJ and Producer Solid Blake delivers the exhilarating four-track 'Warp Room' EP, demonstrating why she has such a bright future as a solo artist. Opening track 'Warp Room' is a full throttle and energetic cut displaying a stabbing synth line which cuts in and out creating a dark, intense atmosphere, setting the tone for what is to follow. 'Soap Cube' pulsates throughout, displaying a nod to the dirtier side of vintage electro, thanks to its edgy percussion and distorted synths. The melancholic 'Tissue' opens with a growl as the fierce drums and hissing snares pierce through any softness to reveal its icy heart.
Closing track 'Contract' has a deep, atmospheric and moody vibe with cleverly crafted layers which continue to build, rounding off the EP perfectly. Having been part of the renowned Apeiron Crew, 2018 has been a exciting year for Solid Blake as a solo artist. She participated in the 20th edition of Red Bull Music Academy in Berlin and contributed 'Masha' to Modeselektor's Modeselektion Volume 4, performing at the LP's tour at leading clubs Berghain, Fabric, Robert Johnson and BLITZ Club Munich over the summer. Her Modeselektion mix for Fabric was highlighted by several key websites (including Resident Advisor, FACT, DJ Mag) as one of the month's best mixes. As an increasingly in demand artist whose busy touring schedule for 2018 has also included Dekmantel Festival, Berlin Atonal, and ADE, Solid Blake's profile will continue to rise well into 2019 and beyond.
Sil says: This is for the tough boys and girls out there. Raw, industrial and very very cold. No soul here! Be warned. Brutalist electro cum techno. Pure quality. Do not sleep. It is not often we get four tracks like the ones here oozing quality like they do. Top draw.
