DescriptionFrom 0-1 turned four years old at the beginning of 2012 and to round off the celebration we have a stellar EP of big room techno from burgeoning resident artist, John Massey of Seattle, dropping his first EP on the label with slammin remixes by heavyweight Midwesterners, Kyle Geiger (Drumcode, Perc Trax, Droid), and Mike Gervais, [aka M. Gervais] (Reloading, Timefog, Truncate).
Kicking off the EP is its namesake, the original mix of Brutal Shores, nothing but a full on big room assault aimed at those seeking to lose their shit on the dance floor; indeed, one of his best tracks to date. Following up next is the Kyle Geiger remix of Brutal Shores. What can we say? This track is a gritty, mean, distorted monster waiting to punish a Function 1 system. The Mike Gervais edit of Brutal Shores is up next and the Minneapolis native certainly delivers. Biased or not, we think this is one of his strongest showings to date, nothin but business in this all-out techno romp. The next track is Brothers Keeper, an original mix by John Massey. Many of the sounds in this track were field recordings of medical equipment used by his brother. A spacious, dense track with a big bass drop this one is for the head and the ass. Rounding off this release is Quinault Assault a loopy, slammin number taking the EP full circle.
