In his debut EP release on Reveller, Berlin-born artist, Exildiscount has crafted 2 original techno tracks full of tension and punch. With her remix of Gift, Reveller Records head, Sky Deep delivers a more stripped back and raw House version. During a one week in New York City a couple of years ago he used a field re- corder to capture some memorable moments. Now one of these acoustic memories plays a central role in the title track of his debut 'Gift EP', behind all the chops and distortion lies the sound of a closing NY metro door.
Both tracks are all about what's hidden underneath the surface of a seemingly friendly gesture, especially with the ambiguity of the word 'gift' which means 'poison' in German. With the aforementioned sample as a key element Exildiscount could have turned 'Gift' into a dark industrial track but the restless bass, the simple melody, and the groovy beats add a warm, almost human aura to the machinery at its core.
