Jasss is a DJ-producer who also dabbles in sound art, and Es Complicado is her second single. The main track combines big-beat slammers with big 80’s synths and a fuzzy noised-up production, while the B-side takes samples from Ingmar Bergman’s film Persona and drops them into an acid stew. 12” as part of Mannequin’s ‘Death Of The Machines’ series.

I’ve been enjoying Mannequin’s ‘Death of the Machines’ 12” series recently. Goods so far have come from Alessandro Adriani, December, Fallbeil and Spanish producer JASSS - who now has her second release in the series. The first ‘Mother’ vanished super quickly so I wouldn’t hang about if her latest ‘Es Complicado’ is your thing.
On the first side we get some top quality techno/electro/EBM/wave that’s both futuristic and retro sounding. The lead synth really tears through the sharp percussion and wriggling bassline - threatening to melt the other components like a furnace inside the speaker, but instead remains sympathetic and doesn’t quite overpower them, letting them do their thing.
‘No Chance’ on the flipside gets busy with junkyard like drums which make way for a really grubby, sleazy New Beat /EBM style synth. Things switch into a chugging, sweaty, leather clad, stomping groove - complete with processed vocal samples -- apparently lifted from Inga Bergman’s classic ‘Persona’.
