Polish born, London based producer VTSS releases Projections EP, marking her first release for Technicolour. Hard, fast and uncompromising - this is how VTSS, one of techno's brightest new stars of the past few years, tends to be described. But there's more to the artist, real name Martyna Maja, than that reputation might suggest. It's true that she's one of dance music's most notorious thrillseekers; Maja's DJ sets the world over, from Berghain to respected experiential festival Unsound, are renowned for their blow-the-house-down energy.
Projections introduces a new phase of VTSS's catalogue, with more new music to come in 2022. It’s nimble drum architecture and scattered tempos express, on the one hand, a desire to break away from familiar ideas, and on the other, a single-minded pursuit of self-expression. From the EP's 'For your safety', a d&b-adjacent perc storm with cool-blue synth shades that evoke Solaris-era Photek, to the lurching hydrodub of 'Live laugh leave', VTSS's increasingly expansive musical persona shines through.
