It's been a minute since we heard from Swedish techno experimentalists SHXCXCHCXSH. With their last long player Linear S Decoded going down a storm in 2014, the duo return to Shifted's Avian imprint with a work to confuse and excite: SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs (this is not a joke). Each track features trademark SHXCXCHCXSH elements which are all wedded to Avian's monochromatic aesthetic 'wrought with tension'.


Here, we present the ninth track “SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs” – or nine "Ss"s if you like – which encapsulates this hyper tensile synthesis most impressively. What is coined most accurately as 'corrosive sound design', the track revolves around warped melodies, wrought iron percussion, white noise and buzzing static. There is what can only be described as an almost redemptive energy contained in “SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs”, as well as SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs' 14 other tracks. This opus sees SHXCXCHCXSH offering some of their most powerful and emotive work yet. The wait was worth it.


Out on June 6th via Avian.

Throes + The Shine - Guerreros (feat. La Yegros)

Wanga will come out on the 20th of May through Discotexas (Universal/!K7). It's the third record by Throes + The Shine and it was produced by Moullinex in Lisbon, Portugal, the place where world music meets electronica right now. Guerreros is the second single anticipating it, a summery jam enriched by La Yegros, an Argentinian singer with an infectious and joyful voice that takes this tune into another dimension.
