Just a couple of months after he turned out the imprint’s 50th talent Stevie Wilson is back with more fine music for the !Organism label. His two searing originals come with a remix from label regular Sutter Cane.
In a short space of time, Wilson has played at the best Scottish venues such as The Arches as well as further around Europe, has had his tracks picked up by tastemakers including Chris Liebing and Dubfire and is signed to several different labels.
Opening up this EP is ‘Be Someone’, a barrelling, shadowy and soot black techno track with grainy future synths, squirming alien life forms and plenty of intrigue all bottled up within. Whip snapping percussive hooks add a sense of scale to the track, as it grows ever bolder as time passes. The occasional sounding off of sirens, too, makes for an unsettling atmosphere that really locks you in.
‘Cry For Help’ is the other original and this one is even more fierce than the first. The kicks are hurried, the textures are rusty and frazzled and the sub bass is so dark it sucks you right in as if it were a black hole.
Sutter Cane has long been entrenched in the electronic scene. He’s worked at cult record stores in Vienna like Friendly House, has played all over his native Austria as well as further afield in Europe and has released on Phobiq and Nachtstrom Schallplatten, as well as being the inspiration behind the Driving Forces record label. His remix of ‘Cry For Help’ is a slick and high tempo, high-energy affair with shooting percussion firing over the groove as if from a machine gun.
For tunnelling techno grooves that strike just where it matters most, Stevie Wilson is up there with the best of them, as this EP shows in spades.
