Wage Slave is proud to announce its fourth release featuring the work of artist/labelowner Attentat. The record is slated for release world-wide via Lobster Distribution on May 26th, 2017. This release features two driving techno cuts by Attentat, with L.A. based artist Israel Vines weighing in with a heavy remix for the heads. The release contains a hand printed jacket and inner sleeve, with letter-press printed linear notes, and is limited to 300 copies. It was mastered and cut by Dietrich Schoenemann at Complete in NYC, and pressed in Cleveland, OH at Gotta Groove Records.

The title track Reflective Surface is a ten minute excursion through a sonic field of overdriven drums, rolling gritty bass, and whimsical floating melodies that unlock a rhythmic release certain to move bodies on the dance floor. The track constantly moves forward with the help of a dirty grinding groove created by layers of filtering repetitive drums, airy metallic synths, and hypnotic bass stabs that puncture the psyche like piercing glimpses into an alternate dimension. A pensive yet positive vibe permeates the track as it unravels creating the right mood for reflecting on the possibility of a prefigurative politics to change the world.

On the flip side Section 172 brings a continued sense of urgency as it builds and becomes a rolling wave of delayed drums and mutating synths working together to create an introspective sense of self.

On the inside cut we have a wonderfully banging remix served up by the increasingly impressive mind of Israel Vines. He manages to maintain the organic qualities of the original drums, while adding a layer of squelch, dissonance, and dirtiness that brings the original sounds to peak time status.
