As a prolific veteran producer VV303 is a mainstay of the Franco-Belgian industrial scene; his back catalogue includes works with Roel Butzen or Yves Deruyter IV – Calling Earth (Bonzai records), and in just the past year he has produced for Implant, Anamorphosis, K-Bereit and Ethan Fawkes on labels likes Alfa-Matrix and Dancefloor Killers. Now the multi-disciplinary Belgian artist presents us with a four track E.P. of dark Techno inspired by the shadiest and grimiest streets of Berlin.
The E.P. opens with Zodiac, a singularly dramatic track that wraps you in a timeless trance-like spiral. The second cut Animal (Society Edit) finds the groove between techno and electro-techno and rides it round and round. Dunkles Berlin (Strich Mix), the title-track, takes its name from the sordid streets and depraved cityscapes of the modern German megalopolis. A thunderous kick drum drives down 'Strich' where every corner reveals another seamy surprise. VV303 further develops these thematic elements by presenting the track's companion video-clip which visually expands on the hypnotic journey. Zweite Tiefkeller (Berlin Cut) closes the EP, a track that calls out to the electro spirit that VV303 has fused into every sound on this and every track of the EP, a record born of the clear intent to convert weekend clubbers into immortal warriors.
