Truss - Ganymede 12" (Perc)
The splendid PERC have a new release on their label. Given it a quick listen and it's sounding good. PERC have very high standards. Here's the blurb:-
Support from Surgeon, Objekt, Chris Liebing, Tommy Four Seven, Dave Clarke, Oliver Ho, Drumcell, Adam X, Xhin, Shifted, Motor, Sawf, Derek Plaslaiko, Chymera, Speedy J, Bas Mooy, Truncate and a shitload more.
Perc Trax’s Welsh born, London based acid wizard Truss returns after the success of his recent releases on Sigha’s Our Circula Sound imprint and his remix (in collaboration with Sigha) of Perc’s own ‘You Saw Me’.
‘Ganymede is Truss’ first Perc Trax outing since ‘Osbasten’ back in summer 2010 and from the outset demonstrates how far his sound has progressed. Fusing the attitude of classic early R&S with modern techno, he layers razor sharp hoover stabs over a heavily swung, bass-laden groove.
Remixes come from fast-rising Semantica/Horizontal Ground producer Skirt and label boss Perc. The former deepens the track, adding more atmospherics over the original’s broken beat kick, whilst Perc sharpens up the hoover stabs even more and adds layer upon layer of his trademark crushing metallic percussion.
Rounding off the EP is ‘Hackney’, a 4/4 jackin’ acid stomper, with a sound that is at the forefront of the current UK renaissance in stripped down, in-yer-face techno.
