Truncate enlists Ben Sims and rising stars Manao & Elektor to remix his ‘Work Ya Ass’ track on his jackin’ WRKTRX imprint.

‘Got to work ya ass off to show you got flavour’ – these words ring true for the hard-working crew behind the seventh instalment on WKRTRX. In addition to the original by Truncate, ‘Work Ya Ass’ also hosts a powerful edit from legendary techno lynchpin Ben Sims, as well as an electro remix from two exciting new names in the scene, Manao and Elektor.

Truncate’s ‘Work Ya Ass’ establishes itself with robust drums and an earworm vocal sample, while swinging rhythmical synths shoot through the track throughout. Sims, no stranger to finding the funk in machines, breaks out the filters, stomping kick/clap combos and piercing stabs to create a raucous version while Venezuelan artists Manao and Elektor flip the track into a bass-driven electro weapon.

Launched to showcase funk-laced, jacking techno cuts, Truncate’s WRKTRX has released tracks by Lauren Flax, Gene Richards, Annika Wolfe and Avision since its inauguration in 2020.
