Brooklyn based producer Auspex kick-starts his new Oath imprint with his debut release featuring five sweeping techno tracks entitled Suspicion EP.
Having cut his teeth over the years coming up through Brooklyn’s now imperilled warehouse scene, Auspex has solidified himself as a regular fixture and contributor to its underground techno and queer nightlife scene. His uncompromising style has seen him tapped to play at parties like Unter and The Black Hole and clubs such as The Bunker, New York and Griessmuehle in Berlin in addition to supporting acts such as Phase Fatale, Randomer, Kamikaze Space Programme, Headless Horseman, Juan Atkins and Rebekah. Auspex’s first track dropped at the start of 2019 on Katie Rex’s “Bound” V/A followed by a handful of remixes and other contributions on V/A compilations.
Suspicion EP sees the birth of his Oath imprint, fully leaning into his unique techno perspective – a merger of occult and mystical elements that play into the inherent spirituality of transcendent dance floor experiences.
Our premiered track today, ‘Laceration,’ kicks things off with brutal kicks, growling synth tones and driving rhythms that progress throughout before ‘Suspicion’ displays Auxpex’s ability to deliver ominous, mutant techno with a fusion of darker modulations and eerie sonics. ‘Apostolate’ blends acid lines with ambient soundscapes and hypnotic pads in distance whilst ‘Heresies’ maintains the haunting atmospheres through textural assaults and arcane elements with dystopian leaning feels. ‘Imminent Domain’ rounds off proceedings with thick, pounding drums galloping around ghostly leads and sinister oscillations.
