Anastasia Kristensen debuts her full debut EP with 'LXR Jam'

Russian-born DJ and producer Anastasia Kristensen earlier this month announced her debut full EP, titled Ascetic, which is set for release on the Warp sub-label Arcola. Above, you can check the premiere for the second full track to be shared from the record, 'LXR Jam'.

It's a pared-back, machine-driven cut centred around bursts of feedback, chirping synths and forceful kicks. The track sees Kristensen move away from the more melodic elements of the rest of the EP's tracks, for which you can check clips here.

The release of Ascetic follows on from a number of compilation appearances for Kristensen's productions in recent years, as well as a remix for Special Request released last year by Houndstooth. Ascetic is out on March 1 and can be pre-ordered here. You can read our review of the EP in the latest edition of our electronic music column Hyperspecific here.
