Dance music’s reining princess of all things twisted returns to Lot49 with a follow up to her first solo release on the label, (Empty Vodka Bottles), which was unleashed on the dance scene last September.
‘Dirty Secrets’ is a naughty techno perversion of an original rock track taken from her Sex & Circuitry project album which was produced alongside guitarist Jim Davies, better known for his axe wielding in bands such as The Prodigy and Pitch Shifter.
Re-creating the original underground electro-rock anthem into something entirely different, and far more fucked up, Odissi takes back her lyrics and flawlessly transforms the initial idea into a brooding, industrial electro monster.
True to her signature sound, she once again injects her music with her sleazy and sultry spoken word vocals, this time in a poetic description of Soho’s vibrant red light district, transvestites, gay bars and seedy brothels.
On the Remix duties, Lot49 has appropriately called in one of the hottest names from Italy’s bubbling underground techno scene, Dyno. Equally known for his love of dark techy grooves, Dyno strips back the vocal and dubs it out, twisting the original into something that wouldn’t sound amiss as the soundtrack to an S&M Orgy. Sleazy and gritty synths roll along tight and driving drums and disorienting guitar stabs. Late night dancefloor headfuckery guaranteed.
For those like the tempo pushed a little harder there’ s also a remix by Hedflux who as of late has been creating quite a buzz with his fresh and distinctive flavor or cerebral tech-funk. In his remix of “Dirty Secrets” he stays true to his sound, drawing on energy from breaks, techno and psychedelic styles, resulting in a fusion of deep driving bass grooves, thumping drops and intricate neon synth-play.
