Triffid Gossip EP

Kontra Musik
Now for something different: esteemed Swedish label Kontra launches a white label series with a release positioned at techno's outer limits. 'Frak 666' rides a filtered, reverberating groove, underpinned by an electro bass and spy movie strings. 'Frak 888' is also unlike typical dancefloor techno, and its stop-start rhythm features eerie synths and grimy acid riffs. But it's the lurching, grungy basslines and shuffling 808s on 'Frak 555' that stand out, proof that Kontra is unwilling to play by the rules.
