Rhyw is the project of Berlin-based producer and DJ Alex Tsiridis. He released different EPs and 12” via labels as Avian, Arcing Seas, TH Tar Hallow and fever AM. Lurk Late is a new EP which is out on July 26th via Modeselektor’s Seilscheibenpfeiler imprint. Title-track is the first excerpt. Listen below.
These four tracks perfectly showcase his skills as a producer as well as a DJ who exactly knows what tracks need to be both functional and interesting, energetic and deep. „IRL“ takes off bouncy and crunchy, setting a dark yet uplifting mood that resembles classic Sandwell District records and runs trough the whole EP. „Tap To Resume“ is a subtle sledgehammer of a track, brilliantly orchestrated and designed. Same goes for the title track, a sinister half time excursion into creepy industrial aesthetics. Last track „Triangle Escape“ shows that it’s probably no coincidence that the EP’s title recalls cosmic horror stories like The Lurking Fear by H. P. Lovecraft. Rhyws productions share his thrilling intensity and minutiae in design, transformed into effective and elaborate club tools.
