One of the most exciting names to emerge on the techno scene in recent times, Lilly Palmer makes her long-awaited Drumcode EP debut.
The German-born artist is a thrilling performer, who backs up her kinetic DJ sets with a quality body of production work. We got a taste of her talent when she contributed ‘Amnesie’ to A-Sides Vol.10 and elsewhere she’s dropped heat on labels including Octopus Records, Senso Sounds and her own Spannung Records imprint.
‘We Control’ is a satisfying label debut exhibiting her stealth-like ability to work a dancefloor with a variety of driving techno moods. The title track embodies a key- driven Motor City vibe, before thrilling waves of jagged synths and ravey effects take the cut into brain spangling bosh territory.
‘Resistance’ builds tension and anticipation in equal parts and is a vibe-heavy tool needed for every set. ‘Plasma’ is a full-force weapon that highlights why there’s so much excitement surrounding the rising artist. The EP closes with ‘Don’t Look Back’, as deep pulsating layers of bass cascade towards the finish line.
“I am absolutely thrilled to have my first 4-track EP coming out Drumcode this April. All four tracks have been major highlights in my sets last year, especially with ‘We Control’ I always felt this exceptional excitement of the crowd, and I couldn’t imagine a better label than Drumcode for them!” – Lilly Palmer
