NYC based singer, multi instrumentalist and prolific producer Heidi Sabertooth brings her experimental and grungy sound to the fore, with a fierce EP examining the grainiest textures in dance music. It’s been over three years since she brought her unique brand of raw techno to Lobster Theremin, and now Heidi deepens her relationship between art and modern-day living in a blend of controlled chaos.
Opening track ‘Screaming Into The Abyss’ does exactly that, with its use of muddled voices and melancholic allure, glued loosely together with vintage acid and the producer's deep love of hardware. There’s a playfulness to follow up ‘Slide Into My DM’, Hedi’s elements seemingly communicating telepathically in a game of mutant-chess. Grooves and otherworldly dynamics flux and spill while splashes of reverb make it anything but predictable.
B side opener ‘Pissed’ maintains this raw aesthetic, sounding both mechanical and free-flowing with its foreboding melodies, melting between heavy bass and screeching pads; remaining functional but full of beautiful, unconventional touches. The record comes to a close with title track ‘Insane In The Cat Brain’ a disorientated affair encapsulating the restlessness and uncertainty of our times, spearheaded by an artist never afraid to take risks.
