LA label Motion Ward preview new EP from Social Service
Motion Ward know what they like, and luckily for us they like techno. This isn’t blistering balls to the wall, necking pills like sweets, mind numbing 4/4 bassbeats, oh no, this is inventive techno what was created with the idea of the small room as well as home consumption in mind.
The producer in question is Social Service and what they offer up is a slice of forward thinking music, that shows how the genre can progress and change with the times. Yes the beat is classic techno, not as hard or fast as Paranoid London, but it’s every way as good. After a gentle build up Late Feeling peaks, but instead of ear melting tweets and 303 wails, it then slowly starts to wind down until its delightful fade out.
SS1 is being released on 15th May on limited edition 12” and download. The incentive for buying the vinyl, not just because it’s a record, is you get a custom lithograph insert. It has a slight Japanese vibe to it and would look awesome framed on a wall! What more could you want?
