MPIA3 aka Truss – Your Order (Forthcoming R&S)

Forthcoming December 03.


R&S welcome new signing MPIA3 to the label with a doublepack of uncompromising techno. MPIA3 is a production alias of Truss (Perc Trax) who has just the two EP’s preceding this on Shifted’s Avian label.  ‘Your Orders’ see him continue down the path of raw, industrial, seriously funky, acid techno. His signature overdriven kicks recall classic Robert Armani and his sound harks back to the days of Mike Dearbourn and DJax Up Beats, and the classic UK techno of Ben Sims and James Ruskin but the tracks on ‘Your Orders’ could have only been made in 2012.

This is heavyweight music built for proper soundsystems and dark rooms. The six tracks on the EP straddle different tempos with some slick drum programming, but are tied together with some razor sharp synths and a healthy dose of acid.
