I’ve got something very exciting for Techno heads today! Based in Germany, mysterious DJ & producer TaxKiller just entered the scene with a killer EP on Baroque Records.
But who really is TaxKiller? I don’t believe for a second that he is new to music producing, his skills are way too impressive and his sound too polished for him to be a new producer. After doing a bit of digging, we couldn’t find any Facebook page, Twitter account or Instagram page, no social media networks at all, this makes it even more exciting! Whoever he is, he literally stunned us with this unexpected but extremely satisfying & relentless EP.
The EP features two equally epic Techno bangers, the first one, “TaxKiller – 7Even” offers a gospel style vocal speech that will never prepare you enough for the thunderous drop that will hit you after the break, this is electronic music intensity at its best. Blending ethereal and exhilarating in the same song is quite challenging in Techno music, but TaxKiller succeeded hands down on “7even”.
The second track from the EP, “TaxKiller – FK Taxes” (our personal favorite) delivers absolutely infectious and hypnotic melodic arrangements, on top of the catchy & haunting vocal samples and flawless build-ups, to me this track is a straight up secret weapon for Techno DJs. This is a song I will play in my sets for a long time!
I wouldn’t be surprised to hear these two songs in tons of Techno DJs’ sets this year. I would recommend this EP mainly for fans of Nicole Moudaber, Pan Pot, Carl Cox, Adam Beyer and the likes!
