Perc & Truss
Since Truss’s first appearance on Perc’s own Perc Trax imprint in 2010, collaboration between the two London‐based producers has looked inevitable, but it took until the announcement of their ‘Spiker’ 12” in summer 2013 for the first results of their working together to surface. The Perc & Truss project focuses on improvised tracks, recorded in one take, often the first take, coupled with energetic DJ performances. Their sound is caustic, dry and bursting with life, a world away from the glut of overly‐atmospheric, rhythmically simple techno circulating right now.
Aggressive vocal elements
2014 saw them perform at a run of carefully chosen gigs together including two appearances at the world famous Awakenings events. In the studio they found time to craft their second EP; ‘Two Hundred’, a record that expanded their sound, taking in aggressive vocal elements, EBM synth‐lines and an excursion into more experimental territory. They rounded off the year by remixing the classic Drax track ‘Phosphene’ for Perc Trax and headlining a huge New Years Eve event in Antwerp.
Now in 2015 they have already played the first Perc & Truss show in Italy and are preparing for a number of joint performances including their UK debut where they will top the bill of the 10 Years of Perc Trax event in London, and their first gig outside of Europe as they travel together to Buenos Aires in Argentina.
