Since the release almost two years ago of their debut album, Irreverence, L.A.-based French electronic group Dirtyphonics have spent the majority of their time on the road. A trio in the studio but touring and DJing as a twosome, their regular exposure to EDM audiences has put them in good stead on the explosive, multigenre new EP, Write Your Future. Opener “Power Now” featuring Matt Rose is an electrified take on high-speed thrash metal, while closer “Since You’ve Been Gone,” also with Rose and propelled by fluttery trance rhythms, is the opposite. They team up with omnipresent trap artist UZ and rapper Trinidad Jame$ for the grimy hip-hop number “Hustle Hard,” and with 12th Planet and singer Julie Hardy for the bass-heavy “Free Fall.” “Energetic” is the thread running through Write Your Future, and what Dirtyphonics’ DJ set promises to be.
