Seth Troxler_s Panic, Stop. Repeat! EP brings together all facets of the young Berlin-via- Detroit producer_s notoriously brilliant/bizarre persona, offering two new tracks (and one house-y remix) of sweaty, ecstatic dance music with a dirty mind and a heart of gold. “Panic, Stop. Repeat!” uses its titular command as a guiding principle, eroding its own immaculate facade through a series of anxious freakouts. The track rolls along like a freight train with a loose screw-designed for precision and speed, but with mechanical parts that constantly jiggle free and whiz off into the stratosphere. As a leathery kick drum and a wickedly simple two-note bassline keep the pace, “Panic, Stop. Repeat!” takes a series of surreal detours involving an EKG machine, a lady_s feverish coos, and one particularly old-school sci-fi synth. Next up, Troxler melds minds with Matthew Dear on the collaborative “Hurt,” a sexy beast of a track featuring bone-dry drum machines, a huge lead tom-tom, and Dear_s terrifyingly deep spoken-word musings. Paco Osuna_s remix of “Panic, Stop. Repeat!” rounds out the EP with an exhilarating take on Troxler_s original, building a subversive house creeper around “Panic”_s heavy-breathing leading lady.
