Here at Data Transmission we like our techno to big and bad (and occasionally bordering on sadomasochistic), which is why, when we heard Thomas Delecroix‘s new Sliders EP, we had to hit the Frenchman up for a Spotlight mix.
Across 3 tracks, the Sliders EP offers a cohesive vision of the hard-knock dancefloors of the future. Layers of digital power are scarred deep by sizzling, acidic lines that bubble and warp, hypnotising through sheer intensity.
Delecroix’s mix is much the same, blending pummelling percussion, crass synths and sheer fury to launch an all out assault on the eardrums. Featuring his own material, alongside work from Mind Machines, Martyn Hare, David Tarrida and more, this week’s Spotlight may be intimidating, but give it a chance and you’ll reap the rewards.
Thomas Delecroix’s Sliders EP is out February 29th on vinyl and digitally on 25th April via Rive Droite Records. Stream Delecroix’s exclusive Spotlight mix and check out the full tracklist below.
