Maceo Plex’s Lone Romantic label signs up new school techno innovators Any Act for the powerful ‘Deti Techno’ EP.
Since their self-released protest EP ‘Civil Act’, Yaroslavl-based collective Any Act have put out music that is physically, socially and politically powerful. That debut from the TRAM Planet Records associates was an evocative offering that paired dynamic guitar riffs with samples of a policeman’s voice and acid-laced basslines. They now continue their mission to unite and strengthen young music communities in their native Russia, as well as around the world, with this new standout release.
The bristling title track opens up with a killer electro-techno groove. Distorted synth stabs and dark vocal samples make for an intense and edgy atmosphere that will fire up any club. ‘Jug A Jug’ is another visceral track with razor-sharp synths ripping up the groove as busted bass blasts down low. Add in angular riffs and booming kicks and you have an explosive techno rave-up.
The excellent ‘Bayla’ is another no-frills, lo-fi, high-impact banger with thumping drums and brain-frying synth textures that are all coated in grit and grime. ‘Till I Die’ shows a different side with its sleazy feel and ghetto bass. A freaky female vocal and pixelated melodies bring late-night rave vibes before closer ‘Chin Chin De’ takes off on rugged electro drum programming. It’s an explosive cut with raw attitude and unbound energy that places you at the heart of a strobe-lit warehouse.
‘Deti Techno’ is a direct and potent EP from the hotly tipped Any Act.
We are presenting the fourth track, ‘Till I Die’.
‘Deti Techno’ EP will be available after the 28th of October HERE.
