IMOGEN has made her debut on renowned label Steel City Dance Discs, ‘Albert Road’.
The EP follows on from her recent record, ‘What?’, and features a fusion of searing basslines with otherworldly soundscapes. Think acid tinges, four-to-the floor beats, pulsing synths and distorted vocals.
Experimentation is rife throughout the record, with soundsystem-bruising cuts from beginning to end, kicking off with fierce breakbeat track ‘In Bed With My 808’.
Closing the record is ‘true-blue’, featuring a remix from Radioactive Man, which is of particular prominence for the IMOGEN.
“I am super excited for my first release on Steel City and Radioactive has done a sick job of the remix,” the DJ, producer and Wigs owner – Wigs being a party, label and community which prioritises equality and rave-ready, forward thinking club music – tells Mixmag. “He was was one of my biggest influences when I first started producing, so it feels mega to have him feature on the EP with me.”
