Rinzen Shares Explorative New Double-Track EP, ‘Passive Aggressive Robot’

For years dance and electronic music have been associated with robots and other artificial lifeforms, and Rinzen has taken that concept to the next level on his new EP, Passive Aggressive Robot.

An undoubted tastemaker in the expanding realm of melodic house and techno, Rinzen, real name Michael Sundius, flexes the full range of his skillset throughout these two cuts.

The title track demonstrates Sundius’s talent for cinematic suspense, creating an impending sense of dread through throbbing kicks and repetitive, ominous synth work. The passive aggressive robot in question manifests through computerized vocals offering prescient warnings about what’s to come. Like a cheeky millennial version of HAL.

Coming second is “The Dark Arts.” A title oft-repeated within fantasy and sci-fi epics alike, Sundius channels these genres into sonic form and creates a new story out of them. A story that is entirely his own. A story that no one wants to end after only six minutes.

The two-track release is out now on Desert Hearts Black (DHB), the darker imprint stemming from the Southern California-based party collective, Desert Hearts. Sundius helped to launch Desert Hearts Black, serving as a collaborator with DHB’s founders, Marbs and Evan Casey, on the debut release, Torus.

In the last two years alone Sundius has also shared music through legendary labels like Sasha‘s Last Night On Earth, John Digweed‘s Bedrock Records, and Lane 8‘s This Never Happened.
