Boomkat Product Review:
Club ready crunchers from the excellent host of Comeme Radio show Bon Voyage.
Hotly-tipped by Helena Hauff among others for her DJing skills, Inga Mauer continues her rise as a producer with the latest Shtum release from Uncanny Valley.
As with her Hivern debut last year, the four tracks on this single find Mauer channelling her inspirations - Bunker, Nation, early industrial grot - through a contemporary lens. The results are diverse, ranging from the big room techno flirt of Dno to the malfunctioning throb of Silences which sounds like a Charles Manier cover of New Order classique Your Silent Face.
She conjures some wicked sub bass frequencies on the skittering electro smear of My Flights Without You whilst Dystopia is the sort of lolloping EBM tool Powell likes to drop in between EVOL and DJ Stingray.
