VTSS Teases ‘Identity Process’

Discwomen-supported artist Martyna Maja is a firm figure in the new wave of relentless talent taking over high intensity dance floors worldwide. Her project VTSS has already made a name wielding impactful techno, EDM, and hardcore into a hype rave vibe. It’s a relevant preface the the preview vid kicks off with an epilepsy warning, her sounds get strobe rowdy.

Maja is just getting started, but the Berlin-based Polish native started down the music path early. After music school didn’t work out, the local culture of club music just made sense. Admitting in a U909 interview that she’s ‘shaped the most by my hometown Warsaw and Poland as a whole’, VTSS is the output of those intense club music upbringings. What we’re saying is…. you should plan a trip. Known for her long-lasting residency at the Brutaż parties and club Jasna 1 in Warsaw, she put out her debut EP on SPFDJ’s Intrepid Skin label last year, followed by her recent 12” on Haven.

Her Repitch debut channels this same ardor into four heavy-hitting bangers that serve as sonic power conductors and ecstatic stamina enhancers. The industrialized pounding of her drum sounds is always accompanied by a taste for reimagining the classic vestiges of techno, rave and even hardcore: from hoover sounds and sampled vocal refrains to classic Berlin- style staccato synth pulses. Her approach is though far from just piling a set of tokenized references, and the raw urgency that fuels her creative energy keeps her production as fresh as her behind-the-decks manifestations.
