I wrote once about promising faceless producers who remain faceless as they gain steam.
Huerco S. is helping the Kansas City migration put itself on the map; Huerco S. knows all about techno. But his new pressing No Jack EP on Ukrainian label Wicked Bass is limited to 250 vinyl copies and won’t be available on CD or online. What a jerk.
Or maybe Huerco S. is letting his steam build. If he keeps pulling the attention he’s getting for the title track on No Jack EP, he may be able to coast on that steam for quite a minute. Huerco’s many avenues of social anxiety include Tumblr, Twitter, Bandcamp and SoundCloud. He’s an entertaining Tweeter, and the images he chooses on Tumblr and Bandcamp complement the early 90s imagery we hear in his music.
No Jack EP
It seems Huerco is in agreement on which track deserves the gold teeth. Check title track “No Jack” for its easy but pressurized beat and 90s spiritworld r&b vocals. The video for side two’s “Untitled” is featured below for when your hangover kicks in. This preview is all we get unless we can snatch a vinyl copy in time. Seven minutes might tide me til this cat blows up a bit more and the demand for his mp3s gets stronger, but hurry up internet. The start of this very replayable EP is as Huerco says,
“Smooth like peanut butter on cheap white bread.”
