Premiere: Hear a Wild Electro Cut From Squallfront
'Stormin'' will land on the duo's Ecke Records' imprint early next month.
The second release on Berlin’s Ecke Records will arrive from label heads Squallfront—a duo made up of Xantrax and Johnny Counce—who deliver their debut EP, Stormin’.
Comprised of two twisted club cuts, Stormin’ is a confounding debut that straddles the borders between electro, techno, UK bass, and rave. On the a-side the duo present “The Bells,” a wildly eclectic electro cut that will surely be a secret weapon in the sets of DJs brave enough to play it. The b-side delivers the slightly more functional “The Crack,” which was recorded with a dusty old analog electric organ in The Cave, an old underground wine cellar in the south of France.
The artwork for the release is the second in a series of works by Ben Fables, with each piece handcrafted with wood as a visual interpretation of the music itself.
Squallfront will also be performing at their Corner Klub party at Acud Macht Neu on December 7 with Joe Ellis, Aatropa, and Brukker, with more details here.
