Since his debut back in 2016, there has been a lot of hype surrounding I Hate Models
aka Guillaume Labadie. However, this is one of the rare occasions where it is deserved. Plotting a path that includes trance, industrial and even a touch of gabba, this French producer makes techno like no one else. This is audible on "Spreading Plague", where he fuses tortured vocals with frenetic drums and spiralling acid lines that recall that other great French maverick, Emmanuel Top. "Martial Order" is just as idiosyncratic, with splintered percussion supporting distorted techno drums. Tasked with a remix, Perc turns "Plague" into a heads down, banging affair, but even his frenetic claps and juggernaut rhythm will find it hard to match ILM's wild original.
