DIVA is a project which explores the outer regions of techno’s psyche – combining the trippy sensuality of Chris & Cosey with the brutalist analogue aesthetic of the likes of Robert Hood or Liasons Dangereuses.

Inspired by the vocal histrionics of strobe lit sirens such as Loleatta Holloway and Jocelyn Brown, DIVA calls on the protean roots of basement club music. Lead track ‘Paris Stabbing’ is a stunning excursion into motor city madness, abstracted disco vocals clash with a broken digi-arpeggio and hooverish bass break down, whilst the flip side ‘But I’ve Never’ imposes a detuned synth siren over an industrial bass sequence and sp1200 piano stabs to eerie effect. Also included is the ‘Paris Stabbing (Beats)’ which pares down the original, adding detuned melodic percussion into a minimalist after hours tool.
