Sam WOLFE returns to 1605 with his ‘Out of Phase’ EP
UMEK’s record label 1605 kick starts 2023 with a new peak time techno release by Sam WOLFE.
Sam WOLFE is an American DJ and producer who has become a regular feature in the 1605 roster and this is his fifth time releasing on the imprint. He has also dropped his high-velocity style of techno on other influential record labels including Oliver Huntemann’s Senso Sounds and Christian Smith’s Tronic.
His early releases were made in collaboration with Rebel Boy including their top-selling track “Psalm 39” and he has also worked on music in conjunction with other producers ranging from The YellowHeads to KILL SCRIPT. This time, Sam WOLFE is working in a solo capacity to deliver two explosive techno tracks in his trademark style that blends enthralling synths with pounding percussion.
“Out of Phase” opens the release with the sinister vocal tones provided by Anadi. Its pulsating bassline and speaker-tearing synths are layered with rattling hi-hats and a thundering kick drum as the track builds towards the spine-tingling suspense of the breakdown. Stepping up the energy when the drums slam back in, the track exudes unstoppable momentum from start to finish.
“Gone” is second of the two cuts and its captivating vocals by Gāuri add eerie tension to the tracks hypnotic flow. The percussion focused with an intense atmosphere and industrial undertones help deliver unrelenting energy, which is tailor-made for peak time moments on the dance floor.
