Normaler Preis €10,00

Mila Stern’s groove-heavy and highly danceable sound explores fringe soundscapes informed by Post-Punk and Electro. What sets her apart is a willingness to embrace unorthodox sounds, explore the beauty in harshness and dissonance, and transform jarring atmospheres into captivating dancefloor moments. With ‘Five Finger EP’,

Mila Stern delivers an eclectic six-tracker featuring two high-pressure originals and four carefully selected reimaginations by Camea, mytripismytrip, Öona Dahl, and Hardt Antoine for Kiosk catalog number 021.

‘Five Finger Discount’ encapsulates Mila’s uncompromising aesthetic: warm, powerful, energetic, and constantly teetering on the brink of disintegration. Morphing, overdriven stabs build energy atop a sub-heavy groove and a sea of pads. A sweeping break fractures the track into shuddering bursts of corroded machinery, before the compact groove returns with punishing dancefloor power.

Camea transforms ‘Five Finger Discount’ into a heavy-weight techno roller. Shuddering, pitch-shifting bass hits and salvos, sizzling white noise sweeps, and an ominous mantra morph the track into a darkly efficient peak-time banger.

Öona Dahl’s Return Remix transforms ‘Five Finger Discount’ into a merciless, beat-driven interpretation focused squarely on the dancefloor. A brutally efficient staccato bassline, electric stabs, and bright blips create an unapologetic and body-moving dancefloor weapon.

Making the original’s blippy synth progressions the focal point, mytripismytrip reimagine ‘Five Finger Discount’ as a slow-burning cyclone of subdued energy. Beautifully pitching sirens intertwine with shimmering arpeggios to unfold waves of transcendent power.

Built around salvos of displaced snare rolls, sawtooth sweeps, and a blippy, detuned lead, ‘Deadline Disco’ draws its power from an eclectic array of sounds jostling for the center stage. A barrage of surging and receding energy encapsulated in perfectly controlled mayhem.

Hardt Antoine builds his rendition of ‘Deadline Disco’ around an infectiously body-moving arpeggio. Layers of distortion add a searing edge, transforming the original into a stripped powerhouse with Dark Disco undercurrents.

Few artists move on the fringe so comfortably, make unconventional sounds so accessible, or pursue their vision with the same bright-eyed conviction. With ‘Five Finger EP’, Mila Stern epitomises the magic that happens when uncommon sounds are embedded in the framework of commanding, floor-focused energy. ‘Five Finger EP’ embodies her stand-out style and the stunning range of musical interpretations it inspires.
