Hamilton Magazine: Music Vinyl Countdown – ttwwrrss_3 by ttwwrrss

Considering that he’s all of 22 years old, it’s crazy that Sean Thompson (better known as ttwwrrss — pronounced “towers”) is already on his third album. What’s crazier is that, with each subsequent release, the Hamilton producer keeps unleashing a genre-blending maelstrom of manic, sinister beats that gets nastier and more devastating each time. The 13 tracks on ttwwrrss_3 are synth-soaked master strokes that run the EDM gamut: from the off-kilter aural dread of “System Overload” to the sonic-induced paranoia of “Had2Buy” to the creeping electro-clash of “Infected.” One of the year’s best, regardless of what you choose to call it.
