Rebekah returns to her Elements label after outings on Soma, Perc Trax, Mord and more. The Birmingham-born, Berlin-based artist delivers five tracks on her solo release, aiming to demonstrate why she is possibly one of the most in-demand and reliable techno acts on the modern circuit.
Rebekah: “Creating a solo EP wasn’t the easiest after a two-year break. With the uncertainty of the coronavirus, confusion of having a clear direction of where we are heading musically, and other projects vying for my attention brought me to an almost standstill. But playing shows this past year and really enjoying just sharing energy was inspiration enough to just go into the studio with that energy and create more track-based pieces. No frills here but just some bangers for DJs sets.”
Leading the release, ‘Teletubbybebe’ combines synth-work and drums for an opening track. Following is the title cut, ‘No Escape’, which ups the tempo and the energy levels with kicks and gurgling sound effects.
Marking the midway point, ‘The Way Of The Warrior’ offers soundscapes and twisted sonics as the track flips between half and double time. ‘Ali’s Groove’ sees trippy vocal snippets, percussion, and machine-like FX combine to create a sense of urgency before ‘The Fight’ closes the EP with distorted low-end and unsettling instrumentation rings throughout.
