Swiss born, Amsterdam resident, The Midnight Tantrum, debuts on the Ransom Note Records sub-label, Insult To Injury, with five Analogue-Techno slices of pure heaven. We first discovered TMT at ECHOBOX Radio in Amsterdam, where label boss Timothy Clerkin presents ITI Radio and TMT, aka Patou, has his own fantastic label show, Dee Dee’s Picks. Easing us in with a slow, atmospheric intro, Thailandish Macarena throbs forever forwards, picking up pace & density with distorted kick drums under long, held bass notes and groove-laden synth lines. A big statement to begin proceedings with. Unshaken Polaroid kicks things up a gear with mechanical rhythms, dystopian vocal edits and atonal synthesis – industrial Electro at it’s very finest. Continuing the industrial vibe, Big Sky Says Bye, drops like an anvil. Overdriven kicks & bass vie for our attention, as we’re assaulted by synth explosions and dissonant atmospheres. Lead single from the EP, Oranje Ant Steak, comes at us hard from the outset with a gigantic kick drum and rolling breakbeat before cleverly morphing into a Balearic techno track, replete with flutes and Spanish guitar! A multipurpose tool that’d be equally at home on the beach and in the basement rave. A Dolphin’s Third Hole round off the EP with some interstellar arpeggios, underpinned by and intense, rolling rhythm section.
