Identified Patient releases "Elevator Music for Headbangers" EP
The debut release on his own Nerve Collect imprint is here.
Nerve Collect is a new label co-founded by Dutch collaborators Identified Patient and Gamma Intel. On 20th January 2023, Identified Patient dropped the debut release, his Elevator Music for Headbangers EP and it comes digitally with two bonus cuts, or as a six-track 12″. Available on all platforms including Bandcamp.
The inaugural EP features material created between 2019 and 2022, catapulting you deep into the netherworld.
At once dystopian yet inviting: the release offers hefty bass and twitchy acid that makes your heart pound and hips move. Right from the outset, ‘Walk With Me’ brings the heat by combining cavernous, booming kicks with bright flashes of acid. ‘You Are the Loop’ is an AI hallucination with mangled synths, while ‘The Fun Never Stops’ is psyched-out mutant jungle.
The B‑side is unrelenting with the dark and pressurised energy of ‘Dead Demo’ and screw-face swagger of ‘The Devil is Blue’, arriving at the final cut ‘Second-Hand Nostalgia’ — an industrial take on trip-hop. The bonus cuts spin out yet further into intergalactic electro-techno warfare and controlled rhythmic chaos.
The mind-melting sonics of this first release proves Nerve Collect is here to do things differently.
More to come from Identified Patient later this year.
