Tazer - Rave Slave EP
One of the UK’s most exciting DJ/Producers, Tazer, is back with the deep and dirty ‘Rave Slave’ EP on Get Twisted Records, released on 11 August 2017.
Title track ‘Rave Slave’ is the perfect club weapon that showcases the hypnotic and twisted bassline, garage vibes and sexy vocal that helped Tazer win widespread acclaim with ‘Wet Dollars’ and ‘Vibrate’.
‘Low Key Groove’ then takes things even deeper and darker with a bass hook that slowly works its way into the listener’s head before building to an all-out peak-time classic.
Multi-talented DJ/Producer Tazer exists as one of the freshest talents to emerge from British shores in recent times. Raised on a diet of Motown and golden age hip-hop, this helped form the rich core of Oxford-raised Tazer’s early education into the rhythmic and melodic elements he’s now skilfully inserted, into a unique and polished sound.
Drawing upon a vast range of influences, self-taught producer Tazer was initially catapulted by breakout smash ‘Wet Dollars’, a track crafted from a "mess around" with production software at the start point of his career. With the infectious hip-hop/house anthem powering Tazer to immediate worldwide reckoning, he later captured a feature from rising experimental R&B star Tink, as the pair combined for one of the surprise collab hits of that year.
Tazer’s sound and resulting debut EP further aligned him amongst the many experimental and forward-thinking acts on the imprint, including Rudimental, Clean Bandit and J Hus. Alongside original material, more work beckoned for Tazer, in the shape of stellar remix work for the likes of Ellie Goulding, DJ Fresh, NOT3S and M.O., proving the sounds he began cooking up in his bedroom, fusing his early hip hop influences with a love of house (and acts like Jamie Jones) could indeed cross over barriers of genre, language and location. A radio favourite from the offset, tastemakers and DJs alike, (of which include, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, DJ Target, and MistaJam) remain strong champions of Tazer’s unique sound.
Since its inception 2012, Tough Love’s record label, Get Twisted Records, has gone from strength to strength, signing an imprint deal with Columbia Records in 2015 and featuring releases from both established names and rising talent including Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry, Sandy Riviera, Amine Edge & DANCE, Man Without A Clue, Purple Disco Machine, Full Crate, No Artificial Colours, Hannah Wants, LiTek, Leon Lour & Felon, and Get Twisted Records continues to grow in stature, with sell-out London shows across 2016 and 2017 showing the power the label currently commands in the UK.
