Beginning his journey as a DJ, Indian artist Siddhanth Kapoor aka Bullzeye quickly became a fixture of the country's nightlife. The Mumbai resident emerged over two decades ago and would go on to perform alongside Carl Cox, Dixon, Eric Prydz, and more; while headlining premiere festivals such as Awakenings, Enchanted Valley Carnival, Sunburn, VH1 Supersonic, and more. Eventually finding his way into production, Bullzeye notched his first release four years ago via Submarine Vibes, a two-track EP that would set the course for future offerings via Click Records, Frenetica, and Minitech Recordings. Now, stepping up for the most anticipated project of his career, Bullzeye adds Movement Recordings to his resume with "Kreature," alongside a remix from Simina Grigoriu.

The title selection "Kreature" finds Bullzeye operating at his creative peak with a production rich in character and groove. Creating a confident energy from the outset, its rhythmic drive is anchored by tough kick drums, rippling basslines, and flashing percussive arrangements, tastefully building to a wild-eyed intensity of growling synths and hypnotic arps. With a breakdown that exudes spirit, Bullzeye pulls from his expansive repertoire, infusing a tension-filled overlay with ominous vocal samples, resulting in a perfect prelude for a powerful drop and heads-down finale. The companion piece "Padrobotic" further cements the EP's dancefloor-minded ethos. Here, Bullseye's meticulous design and muscular approach conjure up dystopian visions, as cutting-edge sonics and rolling rhythmic structures layer a bed of pulsating beats and driving percussion, for the perfect mid-set style energy boost.

The release concludes with Simina Grigoriu making her label debut with the lone interpretation of "Padrobotic." Romanian-born, Toronto-bred Simina Grigoriu has been steadily racking up accolades across her near fifteen-year career. Beginning as a DJ, she quickly made the transition as a producer and kicked off her label Kuukou, a home for techno-forward productions, where she calls all the shots. Adam Beyer's Drumcode, Pig & Dan's ELEVATE, and Christian Smith's Tronic have also been landing spots for her contemporary take on club-effective techno, while she continues to travel the world delighting crowds with her exquisite taste and impeccable programming. Now, fresh off a contribution to Drumcode's A-Sides, Vol. 12 collection, Simina debuts on Movement Recordings with a powerful rendition of "Padrobotic." Staying true to the harder edge of the original, Simina takes square aim at the dancefloor, increasing tempo and pace, while adding acid gates, orbiting effects, and an uplifting break to spearhead a finale that is equal parts tough and emotive.
