Premiere: Laenz ‘Choices’

Premiere: Laenz ‘Choices’

Laenz will release a new EP, ‘After Sunset’, via the Woozy label this month. Listen to ‘Choices’ below.

The Brooklyn artist debuts on Ireland’s outpost for sound system experimentation with a five-tracker inspired by architecture and hauntology. Laenz conjures a dreamstate cityscape, manipulating environmental fragments around pillars of sub-bass and skeletal beats. This is uncanny club music, where unpredictable track structures reflect labyrinthine streets, swerving from deep dembow and warped techno into mind-melting dubstep. Fans of the Hessle/Timedance extended universe will love it, and Hemlock Recordings founder Untold even delivers a wicked remix to cap things off.

Laenz describes ‘Choices’ as “wobbly and fun, but there’s a real darkness from its inception that plays with the track’s spirited consistency. It captures the feeling of teetering on a cliff.”

‘After Sunset’ will be released on 29th March. Pre-order it here.

Woozy’s ‘WZY3​.​5’ was one of DJ Mag’s top compilations of 2023. Read what we had to say about it here.
