Out now on Intec Digital
5th September sees cherished DJ, producer and label boss Misstress Barbara release her latest EP, ‘Don’t Tease Me’, via Carl Cox and Jon Rundell’s esteemed label, Intec Digital.
It’s been 17 years since Barbara last featured on Intec, contributing to the ‘International E.P’ back in 1999. Since then, the Canadian artist has gone on to release her music on some of Dance music’s most iconic imprints including: John Digweed’s Bedrock Records, James Holden’s Border Community, Christian Smiths’ Tronic, as well starting her own label, Iturnem.
The aptly titled ‘Are You Ready’ kicks the two-track EP off, seeing a resilient kick-drum and reverbed vocals layered over a series of looped-up chord stabs, crashing cymbals and other percussive elements to great effect.
Following on, the EP’s title-named track, ‘Don’t Tease Me’ concludes the release in suitable style. This deep-groover gradually builds in momentum, as sultry vocals are layered over a powerful recurring chord pattern, with further elements introduced for the climatic ending of the seven-minute masterpiece.
‘Don’t Tease Me’ is available exclusively via Beatport on 5th September and everywhere else two weeks later.
