DJ Different’s alter ego Terra Form explores the artist’s tougher, uncompromising self; creating music that meets the needs of the dance-floor with the added ability to load us all into hyper-space. It’s electro but with an added sense of largeness, combining carefully selected sounds with rawness at the center.
‘Agripinaa’ opens the EP with its commanding kick drums and mind-altering electronics, sending a signal for those willing enough to hear it. ‘Trinity’ then finds the perfect balance between grit and emotion; distorting naturally airy synths and proving that beauty can be found even in the most murky of sounds.
After the record's raucous opening, the ear-wiggling synths and wide-eyed electronics of ‘Hydraulics Chamber’ lure us back in, before the record takes a surprising turn - the stripped-back grooves of ‘XV-88’ show Terra Form’s ability to use only a few nuanced sounds in both a playful and endearing way, while leading us perfectly down the meandering path to the record's closing sequence.
‘MasterBlaster’ couldn’t be a better suited name and covers almost all the bases. A time-shifting, kinetic overcast that’s both palpable and unapologetic. The Swedish based producer has never reached for the brakes since his career began, merging genres and melting minds. Now the age of Terra Form has well and truly begun.
