New Track: Margaret Antwood – Coincidence Part 2


Initially garnering attention with the Energy Plaza EP in July 2013 (out on Cocobass), Margaret Antwood has been floating on the periphery of the dance music world for the better part of two years now, consistently flirting with a breakthrough into the wider club consciousness, but generally preferring to engage from an outsider perspective. Out tomorrow (July 28) on B.YRSLF DIVISION, Antwood’s Work Focus EP, should change that immediately, its six tracks offering a fully fledged view into the producer’s mechanized world view. Alongside fellow B.YRSLF artists Trap Door and Tsvi, Antwood has effortlessly merged retro synth flourishes with machinic percussion and dystopia-rendering sound design. Tracks like “Work Focus” and “Coincidence Part 2” don’t just sound metallic or pump along at a predictable pace though, they seem to embody the workmanlike spirit of automated labor and the factory environment at large. Premiered below, “Coincidence Part 2” consists of heaving hydraulic noises and piston-esque kicks, recalling an alien Detroit sensibility with a distinctly modern twitch. Look out for Work Focus tomorrow and check out a few other previews from the EP here.
