Pletnev - Thrown Furniture
Lithuanian artist Pletnev debuts on SZE with 3 tracks of ethno-techno, backed with a remix from Ploy. Having previously released on the likes of Meda Fury, Bahnsteig23 and Le Temps Perdu, the Thrown Furniture EP sees Pletnev delve into the harder-edged side of his work. The A-side features Her Cruel Smile and Thrown Furniture, two acid fuelled workouts with a strong rhythmic pulse and those afro-tinged samples that are fast becoming a characteristic sound of the artist. The B-side kicks off with My First Teacher, a creepy and slow burning trip that gets right under the skin. Rounding off the release is a remix from Ploy, coming off the back of his standout EPs for Hemlock and Hessle Audio, the remix is a dive headfirst into the distinctive sludgy sound of this young artist.
