Listen To A Split EP Of Boundary-Pushing Club Music From Toxe And CRYSTALLMESS On PAN

The super-limited physical-only white label release is available now.

Berlin label PAN‘s recently-unveiled white label “split” series takes their anything-goes experimentalism  and hones it into physical-only 12-inches designed for the club. After a first release from M.E.S.H. and Tzusing, they’ve spliced together cuts from Swedish producer Toxe and Paris-based songwriter and DJ Crystallmess.

Toxe’s contributions continue her process of ripping apart and fraying the edges of early ’00s-era French house—an approach first released on her and Mechatok‘s singular project as Emiranda for Yegorka (who you can read an in depth feature with here)—but take a decidedly more dancefloor-oriented stance, layering quick-stepping beats with melancholic melodies, record scratches and buzzing basslines a la Mr. Oizo.

On the flip, Crystallmess underpins the deep ambience and emotionally cathartic style of her fantastic debut EP Mere Noises with pounding syncopated kicks and muffled MIDI horns, crafting a unique meditative energy to offset Toxe’s sugar-rush of energy.

Listen to the EP in full above, then head to PAN’s Bandcamp to purchase the record. Quick note: 300 copies. No repress. Jump on it.
