Today’s track of the day is fresh dose of garage and a splash of house for your Tuesday listening pleasure and most certainly your weekend late night crates -- "She's Out There (Local Artist Cult Mix)" by Klein Zage.
In March, she released a six-track EP Womanhood. Redman describes it as "a swift explosion of pepper spray house and feminine energy" and that it is a "nihilistic declaration of womanhood.”
While it delivers three killer originals and three remixes, for me the stand-out track I have on repeat is "She's Out There (Local Artist Cult Mix)." Sage Redman describes it as "a self-help book made by the patriarchal system."
The track is layered with a vocal that throughout echoes a smart, satirical attack on a patriarchal, capitalistic system and spoofs how marketing objectifies women.
Vancouver's Local Artist, who Redman says she "bonded with over broken sinks and Overcooked," reshapes the track into a playful, dubbed-out Balearic stepper.
I simply love how the track hits you while at the same time being a buoyant, left-field tech-house jam.
I highly recommend you cop this smart, danceable, feminist EP. Sadly, the vinyl appears to be sold out but easy to get the digital version on their Bandcamp page.
