Detroit’s Scan 7 deliver ‘Out Of Nowhere’ on Wanderist’s Transient Nature imprint this June.
The four-track EP sees the Underground Resistance affiliates further cement their relationship with Wanderist aka Maarten Smeets of Dam Swindle, after first landing on the latter’s Heist imprint in 2020.
‘Toxicity’ masterfully opens the package with twisting fx that spiral around the bleeping synths and zig-zagging grooves before retro-futurist electro cut ‘Unfinished Bizness’ lays down funk-infused melodies, spaced-out fx and sultry pads that sit gracefully underneath. On the flip, sleek roller ‘Tronix’ places focus on murky grooves, skittering 303s and a zipping bassline until ‘From that Place’ rounds off with silky, acid-flecked stabs and glistening percussion, offering up a fittingly timeless yet visionary approach to modern electro.
Real and raw from the Motor City, Scan 7 began making a name for themselves back in 1992. Lead by the first original member Lou Robinson (aka Trackmasta Lou) and Mr Hooper; Scan 7 became the enigmatic, masked pioneers of techno who kept their faces hidden while performing. Scan 7 have canvassed the word of techno worldwide, working with renowned labels such as Underground Resistance, Tresor, Elypsia, BTRAX, Wallshaker Muzik, F Communications, KMS and DETROIT UNDERGROUND.
Transient Nature is a label dedicated to the world of machine funk with a sonic aesthetic of off-kilter techno, electro, and everything in between.
