UFO4 | Heidi Sabertooth – ‘With The Void’ OUT NOW
UFO Inc. starts the new decade with fast, dark improv-techno tracks by the New York DJ, producer and singer Heidi Sabertooth.
The four tracks on UFO4 are an impressive testimony to her passion for vintage gear and are the result of an interplay of mainly three machines with which she also plays live: Roland SH-101, Korg ESX2 Electribe and Yamaha DX200 – Sabertooth knows her tools inside and out by heart and tried on this EP to sound as „live“ and spontaneous as possible. She plays her machines like instruments and want them to have some life and bre- ath in them because she grew up playing all kinds of wind and string instruments and played in bands many years before she became a DJ.
Her approach to making tracks is to capture as much live experimentation and weirdness as possible, while still making something that grooves and kicks on the dance oor. She is not so concerned about making things perfect, in fact sometimes she intentionally try to disrupt things if it starts sounding too polished or square: „I like things to be human. I think you can feel it in the recording when the hands are touching the machine – it is human/machine/spirit connection. This is why I named the EP as such – With The Void – this is how I like to create: jump into outerspace, into the unknown, with my machines and we all have an experience together – a cosmic electric dance – and that’s when I hit the record button.“ On UFO4 you can de nitely hear the fun she and her machines had in the recording process.
