PROXY and DZA, “Hater”
Russian producer Proxy steps back a few steps from his usually very aggressive and hard hitting electronica with “Hater”, a collaboration with fellow Russian producer and performer DZA. The relentless and bleak spoken vocal sometimes recalls early Ministry from the 80’s, while the flashy synth work can easily set “Hater” alongside music by Fisher among others. It’s a propulsive, dynamic dance track that’s meant for late nights when clubs are jumping. I’m sure club DJ’s will remember to play this one once clubland resumes again.
