Objekt - Cactus

Straight out of Berlin comes TJ Hertz, known as Objekt. I first came across Objekt's work in the form of a wildly inventive remix of SBTRKT's Wildfire that absolutely killed while retaining almost nothing but vocals from the original tune. Since then, Objekt has released his tracks Cactus and Porcupine on the always on-point Hessle Audio imprint.

What strikes me most immediately about Objekt's style is his marriage of techno and dubstep aesthetics, an increasingly prevalent practice it seems. Old school 808 drum hits reverberate alongside sub-heavy wobbles to create a sort of mash-up through time. This guy has got chops for days.
