We premiere new music from Mila Stern who features on Kisok I.D. alongside Camea, Öona Dahl, mytripismytrip, and Hardt Antoine on remix duties. We feature ‘Deadline Disco’, an off-kilter progressive cut that thrives on shuffling percussive rhythms and screeching synth lines to devasting affect.
DJ-producer Mila Stern is the latest addition to the Kiosk I.D. crew – the in-house label of Kater Blau Club Berlin. The rising producer serves up a six-track EP entitled ‘Five Finger EP’ featuring remixes from Camea, Öona Dahl, mytripismytrip, and Hardt Antoine.
The ‘Five Finger EP’ turns up the heat on the floor with thick tech house kicks and jagged electroclash-style sawtooth leads. With touches of industrial and post-punk, the ‘Five Finger EP’ follows in the footsteps of left-field producers such as Lena Willikens and Inga Mauer. Sonically ‘Five Finger EP’ bears all the hallmarks of tough decision making during the creative process.
“Sometimes you have the obvious route,” Stern explains. “And sometimes you have the second or third or fourth route that is not that obvious.” In her world, that means uncomfortable or jarring, a key element in all Stern’s work.
We premiere ‘Deadline Disco’, a left-field look at the contemporary big-room prog sounds. Mila Stern leans into jagged percussive rhythms on this one, creating a rigid groove that is made the challenge dancefloors in the best kind of way. Shrieking synths and sinister effects creating a menacing undertone acroos the face of a marching band-style snare shuffle. “It reminds me of an angry child sitting there with a snare drum in a room, and just being noisy.”
