In A Moment A Thousand Hits
Shanghai/Taipei-based producer Tzusing returns with ???? (In a Moment a Thousand Hits), continuing his exploration of the seamier side of life, his music mutates from industrial and EBM roots into stranger territories. Like the titular martial arts master of his recent LP ????, who can only achieve invincibility by denying his own masculinity, ???? asks if obsessive pursuit of a specific identity can only lead to its negation, the opposite of the intended image. Amidst the malevolent throat singing samples, suona-like drones, and occasional shouts and howls in Taiwanese, the music’s slamming percussive weight nods towards the most reviled forms of mainstream dance music. Treating every available tool as valid, Tzusing interrogates taste, constructed identity, and the desire for power through five tracks of destabilised funk and thundering processions.
