Dummy Mix 556 // Wilted Woman

"Dark music for warm weather?"

Born in NYC and now based in Berlin, Wilted Woman distills the DIY ethos of both cities into her own musical work. Favouring glitchy analogue sounds and electro-techno stacked with wonky synths, she’s been a prolific cassette releaser, releasing via a variety of underground labels with the same DIY spirit as herself.

Fresh from a collaborative tape with Nick Klein, she recently dropped ‘Lon Lon Night Vision‘ on Erol Alkan’s Phantasy Sound – her debut on the label and something of a curveball for them, with the excellent rhythmic two-tracker scoring a remix from fellow electronic outsider Laurel Halo on the flip.

Winding through some ambient soundscapes, jittery electronic workouts, screechy noise and even gangsta folk, her Dummy Mix is an unpredictable 45 minutes of hyper-modern club workouts. “About the mix… not too much to say about it…” she says enigmatically, “dark music for warm weather?”
