In the Bag
Rebekah shares eight blistering club cuts

Rebekah is one of techno’s most lethal forces. The UK producer pushes a raw industrial sound that’s equal parts cold and uncompromising, a style that aligns perfectly with her Birmingham lineage. Over the last decade she’s put out fierce records on labels like CLR, Mord and Soma Quality, while her assaults behind the decks equally show her taste for the dark. As we welcome her to Room Two next weekend, she sent over a list of eight blistering club cuts she’s been playing recently to set us straight into gear for her appearance.

Cloning Disaster – Eat My Brain (M00DY Remix) [Variant Electronic]

I discovered M00DY towards the end of last year, his sound is hard and industrial but it still has a groove, which I like. Interesting arrangements with twists and turns, mixing industrial with hardcore for this remix – this spanks hard.

Tommy Four Seven – 2084 [47]

The only 4/4 track from Tommy’s album Veer is a straight industrial bomb, but it still grooves in all the right places. His album is incredible and a real development in his sound design, adding a layer of depth with dark pads and eerie vocals.

Crystal Geometry – Our Doom [Tripalium]

Crystal Geometry’s first EP on Sonic Groove was spectacular, and now they follow up with this EBM bomb. I love how this evolves throughout the track, and how funky it is.

Good Room – Maureen [Sticky Ground]

This is a straight up throwback record, no attempts at making it “current”, just a feel good record. This is where I stop and have a little dance during my set.

Paula Temple – Joshua and Goliath (Techno Version) [Noise Manifesto]

Paula’s long-awaited debut album is almost ready to be dropped, and the main track from the album is Joshua and Goliath, a synth-led monster that encompasses everything that Paula is as a producer: brutal drums, but with a melancholic synth and plenty of interesting sound design which make it a huge pleasure to listen to. Look out for Cages from the same album, there’s no full clip online yet but it’s an absolute beast.

Vices & Violence – Kindly Revenge [Illegal Alien]

This record is just lush – so uplifting, and, dare I say, trance infused? I’m not one for so many melodies but I recently dropped this for the first time during an extended set in Berlin and it gave me goosebumps. It’s nice to move from the darkness towards the light, sometimes.

Bonnie – Secretum008 [Mechanical Thoughts]

A fast acid banger that builds and builds. Pure techno.

Empire State – Blow (Version) [VEYL]

I can’t even classify this record, is it electro? Is it EBM? Doesn’t matter… it's a super fun, banging record to play. They also have a track called Cuntworms on the same album, legends!
