Johan Ess / Press

“A great EP to get Johan Ess gigs i bet! And he should have lots of them as he can make the dance floor crack with all its might! Sexy tunes for hot and sweaty clubs is totally not a bad thing to strive for! The groupies, the free drinks and other stuff makes me wanna say: big up for Johan Ess! You fucking rule!!”

“Incorporating elements from all over the electronic music spectrum – quite literally – what you end up with is a sort of future retro gothic industrial glitchstep rave affair with vocals travelling seamlessly from vocoder-esque efforts to distorted glitched out nonsense and everywhere in between. Sometimes the mood is swagged out space dragqueen while others it’s hardcore alien gangster funk, sometimes it’s digital s&m masochism while others it’s front right speaker posse club fare. The thing about “Vltrahex” is that as a whole unit it feels very much like something you might hear at a convention of leftfiedl musical futurist internet famous celebrities – which might not even be an actual thing, but “Vltrahex” does everything in its power to convince you otherwise – and you ain’t mad that it does so.”

“The cybernetic nightmare alchemist from the ultra cosmic sadness land of glitchy vortex beats (Florida), is back with his newest masterpiece of politically relevant sonic trickery.”

“His style is at times chaotic, but with a melodic interplay that differentiates itself from everyday electronic music. Drifting up and down the musical spectrum, each song slips between genre bending and embracing on an album that would feel at home in a robot’s ipod.”
