A 3 track techno | broken ep (18m 38s) — released September 25th 2020 on Nervous Horizon

Following a stellar run of recent releases including best-of-year EPs from the likes of DJ Plead and DJ JM, Nervous Horizon are back with their first record of 2020 — a unique new collaborative EP by object blue and label co-head, TSVI.

Out on September 25th, 'Hyperaesthesia' details four sweltering new club tracks — described by the pair as "body music" — that mesh together object blue's widescreen, experimental club tones and TSVI's borderless percussive styles.

"I was curious to see how TSVI and I could merge our sounds, whether we could supplement each other without eclipsing one another, and I'm so happy with the result", explains object blue. "I never thought I could write with somebody else but this happened so easily. It's been a liberating process, just a pure pursuit of fun, yelling in our chairs when we dropped the beat."

Inspired by 'ever-present conversations about machines and sentience', the EP's mechanical crux plays out in the narrative of the tracks too; from a sense of machines 'waking up' on near 8-minute opener 'Thought Experiment' to the frantic, processing energy of 'Turing Machine'. The record also comes complete with a special remix by Loraine James and vinyl-only bonus track, 'Syntax'.

'Hyperaesthesia' follows a fruitful 12 months for both object blue and TSVI:

Following the release of her breakthrough debut EP, 'Do You Plan To End A Siege?', for Tobago Tracks back in 2018, object blue has since become one of dance music's most crucial new artists. As well as releasing her third, critically acclaimed EP last summer ('FIGURE BESIDE ME'), she's turned in remixes for everyone from Murlo to Seb Wildblood, been invited to record a BBC R1 guest mix for Benji B and performed live at Paris Fashion Week, after composing the music for Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood SS20.

TSVI's upward trajectory shows no sign of slowing down either. From the release of his enchanting debut album 'Inner Worlds' in 2018, he's since gone on to put out a series of game-changing records under his Anunaku moniker for both Nic Tasker's AD93 label and Martyn's 3024 imprint, including July's '032' — a joint EP written with DJ Plead. Alongside fellow co-heads Wallwork and Federico Ciampolini, he's also overseen the rise of Nervous Horizon since the label's inception in 2015, moulding it into of the UK's trailblazing new-school dance labels.
