US-born, Berlin-based experimentalist Wilted Woman has slowly carved out a space as one of the most intriguing figures in underground electronic music. Producing with a fundamental DIY attitude born of an immersion in the east-coast, U.S. punk scene, the alias of Elizabeth L Davis is known for her releases on imprints such as Alien Jams and Primitive Languages/Psychic Liberation, collaborations with Silvia Kastel, Nick Klein and Cristoph de Babalon and the long-running, ever-esoteric show Deep Puddle on Cashmere Radio.
As such, it’s a pleasure to welcome Wilted Woman back into the fold for her second release on Phantasy. Whereas 2019’s ‘Lon Lon Night Vision’ signalled dystopian rave deconstruction, remixed by Laurel Halo (a “haphazard techno wrecker for unleashing your inner crazy clown”, as Resident Advisor put it), ‘Glossy Center’ reveals two tracks that maintains that same bass weight, while blossoming into the sort of arrangements that would render cyborgs dewy-eyed with unprogrammed emotion. Meanwhile, a club interpretation from Kim Ann Foxman, a linchpin of club culture in both the US and Europe, is singularly weaponised to melt their synthetic brains.
