We don’t know much about this week’s guest Soj, which is fine because their music does the talking. They’ve been on our radar since 2015’s Vorspiel. When news reached us their new album Body Shaper was coming up we felt the urge to reach out and invite them to guest on our show. And they don’t disappoint. Showcasing their DJ sound they drop tracks across the electro-acid-techno-EBM spectrum, dropping a cut from the new album as the session’s closer.
Soj runs Soil Records. A tape and record label based in Spain pushing the likes of Choona, Autumns, Group, Space (GR), Orlok 101, The Horrorist, Hainbach, and others, alongside their own material. Coming up on the label are releases from Samuel Kerridge, Crystal Geometry, and TV.OUT. Soj have new material due on ever reliable imprint Subsist very soon together with remixes and EPs later this year.
