TRUSTXY-1 | 2021-08-27  
Crises invite introspection. To counter the social and cultural void of 2020 we have asked friends and favorite artists to analyze, extract and recombine our electric DNA for the TRUST XY recombination series.

DJ Glow’s ‘The City’ opened the first TRUST release back in 1998 and starts off XY.1 as well. Viennese duo /DL/MS/, whose album debut will drop on TRUST later this year, turns its brittle lo-fi funk into an airy electro stepper, complete with the original’s classic arcade samples.
Keith Tucker needs no introduction as a Detroit techno master, from early Direct Beat to this year's Optic Nerve album for Axis Records. Microthol remixed his ‘Plastic People’ back in 2003, and he returns the favor with a slamming electrofunk take on ‘Binary Systems’ (TRUST18).

Two masked electro heavyweights and TRUST alumni meet on side B, with The Exaltics reshaping DJ Stingray’s ‘Herd Instinct’ from TRUST20. Sherard Ingram’s unmistakably lightfooted beats are paired with a propulsive bassline and seductive synths of The Exaltics’ design.

With Privacy we have shared DJ booths, bunk beds and hangovers, and we are very happy to welcome him to TRUST at last. He chose to deconstruct ‘Eha’ off VC-118A’s debut EP (TRUST22). Always one to gleefully sidestep expectations he winds down the original’s sparse electro dub into a foreboding doomsday hip hop instrumental.

Future parts of the XY recombination series will feature remixes by Ultradyne, Peter Manner- felt, Alex Cortex, Clatterbox, Stenny, D.Tiffany, Microthol, Second Storey, DJ Di’jital, Luxus Varta, and more.
