Beginning its life in the Tresor and Hansa Studios of Berlin, clubland is in its very DNA. A clash of sounds and genres, from its ominous old skool rave nods to its stuttering post dub-step crescendo, “Moments” is at once foreboding, sense-heightening and utterly intoxicating. Clamouring to be heard in those darkest spaces of the dancefloor where anything can happen, “Moments” is a stark and thrilling paean to the paralysed nightlife scene.
Finalised at Manchester’s electronic institution Blueprint Studios and the legendary Yellow Arch Studios in Freud’s hometown of Sheffield, “Moments” forms a quarter of an upcoming EP: ‘Love In The Backwater’ – set for release on the Modern Sky UK label this December.
Dirty Freud is an award-winning electronic live & recording artist from London, now living in the North of England. He has worked with an array of DJ talent including Jon More (of Cold Cut), DJ Krush, and Dave Haslam; as well as established artists including Leeroy Thornhill of The Prodigy, Scott Garcia, Willy Mason, Big Narstie, Pixie Lott, and even Iggy Pop. Supported at radio by stations including BBC 1Xtra and BBC Radio 6, Freud has also received praise from The Guardian, DJ Mag, and MixMag, who hailed him: “The Unruly Prince of Electronica”. He has performed at major festivals including Glastonbury, All Points East, Citadel, and Boomtown, and across Europe.
Signing with Modern Sky UK in 2020, he will release his debut EP with the label: ‘Love In The Backwater’. Walking a tightrope of lockdown claustrophobia and the exhilaration of club escapism, the EP is inspired by some of life’s most impactful moments, from bitter break ups, to taking your chances, and surviving a pandemic. Alongside new release “Moments”, the EP will comprise previous singles “Blood Bayou” and “Intentions”.
