The latest release from Eat My Hat finds Ziger pairing with Mind Conspiracy for their debut collaboration 'Your Way'. As the Eat My Hat label boss, Greek artist Ziger has appeared on ten of the label's first fifteen releases. Over the course of the imprint's eighteen-month existence Ziger has also carefully constructed a unique and talented artist roster. Featuring a cohesive balance of widely regarded veterans such as Basil O'Glue, D-Formation Juan Deminicis and Simos Tagias alongside fresh talents like Arthesia vs DalNulla, Celene, Kenan Savrun, MXV and Tantum. Also making a name for himself via Eat My Hat has been Mind Conspiracy. With three remixes for the label across 2020, the Greek artist now teams up with label boss Ziger for their first joint production alongside a remix from Lugubre.
Beginning with the original mix Ziger and Mind Conspiracy combine their creative powers for a rugged slice of astral techno. Energetic and crunchy from the outset, tough beats and a machine gun bassline unite for a rippling foundation. Dramatic pulses, buoyant arps and devilish effects add sizable momentum leading into the main break. Trippy yet emotive, the centrepiece builds anticipation through harmonic waves and heady effects, ultimately leading to a powerful rush of noise which sparks a commanding drop and full on finale.
The lone interpretation of 'Your Way' is provided by Lugubre who returns to the label for his second appearance. The French artist made his Eat My Hat debut to begin 2021 with the release of his three track 'Animah' EP. Now making a quick turn around Lugubre brings his melodic techno sound back to the label with a powerful rendition of 'Your Way'. Sitting as an ideal complement to the original, it's stripped yet muscular groove resonates on a deeper level, complemented with sinister stabs and fragmenting phrasing. Wonky arps push momentum further into the darkness as the first act evolves, before melting down into a suitably poignant break and charged finale. A massive remix from Lugubre which rounds out a must have debut collaboration from Ziger and Mind Conspiracy, further establishing Eat My Hat as a leader in melodic techno. Highly recommended.
