The self-titled, debut EP from STECHER illustrates a wide scope of production skills and a highly collaborative spirit, showcasing a diverse range of influences across various genres. STECHER will be released via NIA Records on May 12th.
From the fierce, hypnotic rap of Avex via a more intimate yet powerful vocal piece by Liaam Iman, to Leila Hassan, who delivers an abstract, riddle-like spoken word performance set against the backdrop of polyrhythmic drum patterns, seamlessly oscillating between abrasive textures and warm synth lines. The result is a boundary-pushing fusion of influences that merge together into a powerful statement of intent.
Topping off the EP are a couple of unmissable remixes by two of Nyege Nyege / Hakuna Kulala’s finest producers – Chrisman and Debmaster.
