Scheduled for release via Fresscode Records on July 23rd, 2k20 is Afflicted's "District EP", the next collaborational project by Sascha Müller and Ufuk Özbayar. Opening with the title track "District" the two producers are catering a straight, somewhat bouncy Techno banger for fast lane sessions, sporting precise claps and epic, uplifting modulations both appealing to Trance as well as EBM / FuturePop audiences for a reason, "E.W.T.B.S." presents a more muscular, hammering approach towards stripped down, futuristic HighTech Rave whereas the closing cut "Psychodoc" caters a similar, even more minimalist, brooding ToolTechno vibe somewhat disrupted by disturbingly strange, irregular bassdrum glitches and garnished with epic modulations evoking memories of dark AcidTrance for those who know.
