A 3 track rave ep (11m 26s) — released July 29th 2016 on Infinite Machine

Polish producer B.YHZZ (pronounced ?be wise?) joins the ever-expanding Infinite Machine roster this July, treating us to his debut EP "Contra". Stylistically drawing from the same pool as some of our other recent signees, such as WWWINGS, W3C or Ziúr, his EP is aptly titled in that there is abundant counter-cultural energy underscoring the proceedings. Situated on the fine line between extreme club and rhythmic noise, and alternating between tense musique concrète arrangements and all-out cybergrind blasts, "Contra" is a treatise on an idealist mutability of clubbing. Glitched, retriggered and/or mercilessly processed car alarms, tire skids, beer can tab pops and guttural NYHXC vocal samples set the stage for deluges of low-end drone and volleys of gut-punching percussion.

Whereas tracks "AGES" and "REDU" attempt a measure of restraint – the former via a dembow-indebted flow, the latter via a seeming Rotterdam-gabber-in-triplet-form gait, it's on opener and lead track "HOL" that B.YHZZ pulls no punches.

Overlaid with occasional cyberized interjections and incessant whispered incantations, "HOL" maintains a hypnotic, subliminal groove while pneumatically hammering into listeners, at surface level.

This is the true promise of Eastern Bloc, post-communist, brutalist, unfettered punk – for the first time fully hinted at.
