Premiere: SubXtOrt Returns to Format Recordings with Politically Charged “Harsh Duality” EP

SubXtOrt returns to Format Recordings for the politically charged and musically diverse Harsh Duality EP. Forged amidst the social awakening and reckoning of America’s future, this EP spans four tracks that each explores a different sonic aesthetic.

The title track “Harsh Duality” is a tightly produced anthemic banger, followed by abrasive textures and the schizophrenic energy of “Total Surveillance” presented as a highly polished arrangement and its original one-take raw modular mix.

Rounding out the release is the absolutely pounding track “American Police State” which draws heavy influence from the iconic sounds of classic Chicago techno with a focus on heavy kick drum drive, skittering percussion, and hypnotic looping synth lines that carry the warehouse techno sound forward.

Enjoy the exclusive premiere of the entire Harsh Duality EP from SubXtOrt on Format Recordings below:
