Format: Vinyl, 12", 33 ⅓ RPM, EP, Black Vinyl
Released| 19 Oct 2022
47 regular Scalameriya returns with a collection of maximalist peak-time scorchers.
Serbian DJ and producer Scalameriya—AKA Nikola Grebovic—has been delivering a relentless, linear churn of hard-hitting techno for more than a decade. Grebovic is no stranger to 47, having released two standout EPs—47018 and 47024—in 2018 and 2020, respectively. 47031 sees the Serbian artist make a pulverizing return to the imprint with one of his dirtiest and best-engineered collection of tracks yet.
On his latest release, Scalameriya strikes a particularly fine balance between deranged distortions and lean loops fit for the dance floor. Crisp, efficient and grating, "Farewell Refrain" channels the maximalist, muscular stomp of his past releases, while "Nervstinger" courts chaos with its screeching sound design. The B-side showcases more intricate rhythmic dynamics, beginning with "Rokbokx;" this functional tool is forefronted by percussion, offsetting piledriving kicks with feedback and semi-intelligible shouting that scythe through the noise. But it's "Xlog.No.153" that most distinctly ties Grebovic's EP to the 47 canon, using powerful breaks to steamroll the punishing EP to a close.
