London-based, Polish producer VTSS (real name Martyna Maja) releases brand new single “Make You Scream”.
The new release is a vocal-led mutant pop track which marks her debut for Ninja Tune and a new era for VTSS as an artist. It is accompanied by a striking video, directed by Furmaan Ahmed (who has previously shot Willow Smith, SOPHIE and Dorian Electra), the release sees VTSS’s musical character step further into the light, backed up by razor-sharp production.
On “Projections”, Maja allowed VTSS to glide between tempos and energies without losing the bite inherent in her sound. New single ‘Make You Scream’ sets out VTSS’ role as your new favourite icon in no uncertain terms, featuring her own hypnotic vocals for the first time. The four-to-the-floor thump casts an eye back to the path she’s journeyed so far, but here the energy is more akin to Miss Kittin’s devastatingly seductive electroclash than hard n’ fast kick drum intensity.
As a DJ, Martyna cuts an imposing figure in the realm of explosive, hard-edged techno, while her productions have moved from disruptive variations of club music towards a more diverse, highly personal strain of electronica.
