Bjarki’s bbbbbb records will launch its HELLCAT sub-label with a V/A compilation. 

HELLCAT‘s focus will be on club-ready dancefloor-driven tunes and showcasing some of the freshest producers influencing the scene. The first edition welcomes VTSS and Cadency on the A side, paired with Icelanders Bjarki and Kuldaboli on the flip.

Berlin-based Polish producer VTSS is a regular at Warsaw-based club Jasna1, and her visceral productions join the dots between hard techno, acid, rave, and EBM. “Sober Raving” sees her deliver again with rumbling bass, mean melodies, and a cacophony of percussion. Cadency is a moniker Héctor Oaks, and “Eating Steel” is an example of how twisted the KAOS founder can get, combining reverberating kicks with oscillating atmospherics and murky vocal samples.

Bjarki and Kuldaboli have teamed up for “Hrái Hötturin,” a fast-paced cut with sci-fi stabs and intricate warps, before the blistering solo outing from Kuldaboli entitled “Hefurðu einhvern tímann hugsað um það” warps listeners through outer space at 160 bpm.
