Downwards offers us up another hard-hitting club 12”: nothing surprising there, but wait, Raging Tender is made up of songs! Grebenstein & Seefried is a producer & vocalist team-up, with dark lyrics delivered with dead eyes over the top of driving minimal Berlin technoid structures. Real club songs for the serious.

Producer Jan Grebenstein and vocalist Christine Seefried join forces for an uncompromising EP on Downwards exploring pleasure, pain, sex and death. The subject matter articulated in the intimate vocals is explicit and could feel somewhat uncomfortable, yet is delivered in a very sensual way that's irresistibly seductive. Seefried’s vocals are extremely charismatic to the point they are totally bewitching - I feel like she could convince me to do things against my will with all the power of a cult leader. The effect somewhere between angel and dominatrix. Grebenstein’s backing production is very complimentary and never overwhelming, allowing plenty of space for the power of the words. Imagine Madonna’s ‘Justify My Love’ came out of some Berlin S&M techno dungeon and you’re somewhere there. Gotta say after a few spins, this one is really gripping me.
