From the depths of the inexhaustible id comes UNICORN HARD-ON, a scintillating synth seductress with a noisy bite. Living in Providence, RI along with Ren Schofield, aka CONTAINER, another deep sonic explorer plugged into the minimal synth hivemind, Unicorn Hard-On has been entertaining sweltering basements with her indelible, haunting dance music since 2003. On ‘Wet Pet,’ the first track from her upcoming debut LP ‘Weird Universe’ on the John Elliot-curated Spectrum Spools, Unicorn Hard-On plunges head first into propulsive techno beat, twisting it into exquisite shapes. A muscular bassline throbs in an entrancing, driving rhythm as sensual tones oscillate and sparkle, dilating into stimulating, disturbing frequencies. Scattered percussion pans out in phased waves, locking in a sweltering groove before its melted down and rebuilt anew. The provocative NSFW video appropriately pulls no punches with its explicit sexual overtones – this is deep dark late night club music, stuff to lose your mind to. Look out for the full length September 30th.
