VTSS has quickly risen to prominence in the world of club music in recent years, delivering some of the most talked about DJ sets and mixes. She’s refused to settle, both creatively and literally, having cut her teeth in Berlin before moving to London in September 2020. This led to her being signed by Ninja Tune subsidiary Technicolour, who will release her Projections EP on January 28.
The change of location gave her new perspective, she says: “With clubs being closed and there being no perspective on when it was going to change,” she says, “I felt free for the first time to do what I wanna do. And being in London, being surrounded by friends who are outside of the ‘techno bubble’ — everyone here is more genre fluid. That was really inspiring.”
That genre fluidity can be heard in the EP’s lead single, “Trust Me”, which she introduces by saying: “Being in a new city gave me courage to explore some territories I thought I could never reach in my music. ‘Trust me’ is the result of that and one of my fav tracks I’ve made.”
On “Trust Me”, VTSS slows things down slightly from the peak-hour rave ups she’s known to deliver – but that only gives more space for her myriad of mind numbing ideas. In under two minutes she lights up all the dials in your brain with creative stabs of bass, disorienting rhythms and cortex-tickling synths. We can’t wait to hear what else she has in store on Projections.
