Shroombab feat. Kitsune: “We Killed Privacy Remix LP” – both a message and a beat!

Shroombab, DJ, producer and founder of High Tension Recordings, was born in Upper Austria and moved to Vienna in 1997 – where she started to change her instruments from flute and guitar to turntables and sequencers. She’s had gigs in over all over the world and several record releases on quality labels followed. Shroombab has now released the “We Killed Privacy Remix LP”, containing the original version of the song, featuring the voice of Kitsune, plus seven remixes.

This EP isn’t just the best DnB album I’ve ever heard in a while; it’s one of the top electronic recordings in general.

Believe the hype on this, because it literally does break down genres for an absolute head rush of sound. The tracks are so damn good that the35 minute long set flies by leaving you dazed and stunned wondering what the hell just happened to your ears.

Prepare yourself for a journey. This “We Killed Privacy Remix LP” takes you high, low, underground and soaring through the clouds. At every turn, there is a new an intriguing soundscape to propel you into a Drum n Bass nirvana, as well as dubstep, ambient and techno styles. Shroombab brings something new to the table that all predecessors lacked, absolute intensity at every turn.

The sonics of this EP are tremendous, if you have a solid hi-fi system you are in for a treat. Shroombab is amazing at her electronic arrangements. What’s especially powerful about this EP are the variations in tone and tempo due to the different remix stylings.

Of course, a quick run through the lyrics shows that Shroombab doesn’t take things at face value, but searches for the deeper meaning, establishing both a statement and a warning:

Google knows what you’re looking for.
Facebook knows what you like.
Twitter knows what you read.
Your Smartphone knows where you are.
Bad enough, isn’t it?

But it comes worse.
Instagram knows what you eat/look like.
Amazon knows what you buy.
Supermarkets know if you are pregnant.
Your bank knows when you are broke.
Good life, isn’t it?
