EFTEE – The Shaper – WINKED Records

Back in the hollowed corridors, WINKED Records returns with its latest offering, EFTEE’s sublime two-track EP, ‘The Shaper’. Dark, stark, and brash, the release is a perfect addition to the label’s rising catalog, while pushing the artist’s “no-holes-barred” sound to the max.

Electric from the onset, EFTEE’s ‘The Shaper’ courses across a pounding beat as razor-sharp hi-hats cut through the mix like blades. With a clear horizon on the board, the Spanish DJ and producer triggers pulsating lines that traverse over the mix with unbridled energy, colliding against a myriad of exploding effects and cavernous ambiances. Following a first breakdown, ‘The Shaper’ contorts in harrowing, yet spellbinding ways, adding a fantastic series of arrangements that elevate the piece as it makes its way to a second halt, before resuming its warpath with one last blitz where dancefloors quake under this highly narcotic slice of hard techno.

For the second act, EFTEE unveils the aptly-titled ‘Project Mayhem’. Living up to its ‘Fight Club’ counterpart, ‘Project Mayhem’ unfurls in chaos as driving kicks tread over an earth-shattering low-end rumble. With a tense backbone in place, wonky synthetic blips emerge from the depths as filtered hi-hat lines sway in and out, working in tandem with thick percussive splashes and sandpaper-laced stabs for a monumental rollercoaster of a ride that’s bound to offset a most welcomed rush of blood to the system.

A no-nonsense affaire, EFTEE’s ‘The Shaper’ is a perfect exceeder, one that exemplifies the raw energy of a genre that has been rising through the ranks with unrivaled power while encompassing the Spaniard’s gritty and filthy sound.
