Helena Hauff – Touching Plastic
Helena Hauff doesn’t half-arse things easily. In the past few years, the Hamburg DJ and producer has earned a reputation for playing and creating some of the hardest hitting electronic music around. In the words of mixmag, this is music that favours “raw and incendiary sounds.” Her latest single, Touching Plastic, follows suit.
Released on fabric Originals, Touching Plastic is an acerbic, writhing piece of electro that introduces elements of brighter melody into Hauff’s arsenal. But while Touching Plastic might be more rubbery and vibrant than we’re used to from Hauff, it still seethes with her signature edge. A ceaseless drone in the track’s background adds razor sharp tension throughout, while Hauff’s percussion keeps Touching Plastic punchy and propulsive.
