For the 5th release on their main vinyl series NZ-founded and Berlin-based outfit Haven have enlisted the help of Poland’s finest new voice in industrial-tinged techno. VTSS, as the resident of the infamous and daring Brutaż party and Jansa1 club in her hometown of Warsaw, quickly made her name across the continent through her raw and aggressive live shows, energetic DJ sets, and a sound cutting the line between techno, EBM, rave and industrial. Furthermore, in 2018 she released her debut EP on SPFDJ’s Intrepid Skin, further entrenching her reputation as one of the most exciting artists arising in the genre.

VTSS kicks off the EP with a slamming EBM-techno mashup in ‘Up & Down’ on the A1, combining heavy kicks, creepy synth-lines and the screaming, atmospheric vocals of collaborator Karolina Bartczak. This genre combination is followed in ‘I Don’t Think It’s Better’ on the A2, using its rolling drums and ominous synth-funk to create a defiant dance-floor killer. The B1 starts the flip side with ‘Nicetry’ - bringing together VTSS’ trademark eerie synth ambiance with tight electro drum programming. Finally, ‘Ununtrium’ closes with a stomping broken-beat, amen-break bruiser that sustains the menacing character of the up-and-comer’s second vinyl outing.
