The creative strength of Peter Spilles is inexhaustible. With the brilliant Project Pitchfork album «Dream, Tiresias!» still ringing in our ears, he follows it up with the «Rocket Heart» EP from his unconventional project Santa Hates You.
Stomping beats, driving sequencers and apocalyptic sounds are skilfully mixed with dark, aggressive vocals. Peter Spilles and his Italian partner Jinxy give us, in an unexpected and seductive way, a musical kick up the arse which lends the whole an unnaturally sexy character.
Santa Hates You are loud, aggressive, dark, rebellious, threatening, danceable, moving, passionate and intelligent. An alluring yet wild playground of electronic music, upon which the protagonists let off steam with lascivious poses and innocent expressions in order to clobber the listener around the ears with the concentrated strength of their beats and sounds, which nearly take your breath away.
The EP is packaged in an elegant digipak and is strictly limited to 2.000 copies. In addition to a cover version of the And One hit «Deutschmaschine», it also contains remixes from Straftanz, Soman and Reaper plus a bonus track.
«Rocket Heart» EP will out December 4th, 2009 (cat. no.: TRI381) via Trisol.Tracklisting:
