Nej-Las Releases Dark Wave Electro EP

If you think techno and electro has nowhere else to go, you’re very much mistaken. The latest release from Nej!Las, a two-track EP featuring Washout and Fini, threatens to be a major crossover release. Featuring elephantine throbbing beats, this is an almost shockingly dark, seething crawl through a modern metropolis to the very heart of some gigantic robotic mastermind.

As well as soaking up the more obvious influences you might expect a producer and artist who has spent time in Detroit and Chicago to have in their arsenal, there are other more unusual angles: the organised, futuristic worlds of Flying Lotus; the ever-shifting soundscapes of Boards of Canada, as well as the noir-esque soundtrack work of Thomas Bangalter, John Carpenter and tomandandy.

Nej!Las is no ordinary artist, having founded a charity which has already delivered $2.5 million aid across the crisis-stricken areas of the Middle East, as well as creating her music in eight different cities across two countries. Like her ever-present black hoodie (which also serves as her logo) what may at first glance seem familiar hides a genuinely thrilling hit of cutting-edge dark-wave electro brilliance.
