Premiere: Rhymos – Agent Provocateur (Whistleblower)

Whistleblower is an imprint that has huge names behind it: Alan Fitzpatrick (Drumcode/Hotflush), Reset Robot (Truesoul/Cocoon) and Rhymos (Rumors/Murmur), whose roots lie in the close-knit electronic music scenes of Southampton and Portsmouth on the UK’s South Coast. They are focused towards House and Deep Techno, and the latest label offering is a new EP from Rhymos, who in the words of DJ Mag (UK) “isn’t just another purveyor of greyscale Tech House by numbers…”.

We’re happy to deliver a full premiere of a second track from the EP titled “Agent Provocateur”. This is one of the coolest tech tracks on this autumn: it is deep, minimal and extremely mystic. Its lightly sequenced tribal percussion layered under mechanical hi-hats. Filled with the warmth of dusty pads, as things develop a breakbeat drum loop is also introduced with dramatic effect.
