Versatile Dutch producer SUBFICTION unveiled a new single, ‘we_glitch’, on April 26th, 2024 via On Track / SUBFICTION. ‘we_glitch’, which premiered via Electronic Groove, is an appetizer for his forthcoming EP of the same name, slated for release in May 2024. Since the project’s inception in 2022, the year in which he notably played an official after-show for Ross From Friends, the elusive SUBFICTION has been making waves in the music industry with no signs of slowing down. He has toured the Netherlands alongside De Likt and legendary travelling festival The Popronde as 3voor12 talent, and performed at festivals like Grasnapolsky, Motel Mozaïque and Eendracht Festival, as well as many underground clubs. In 2023, SUBFICTION hosted a festival stage together with Irish DJ/producer Kessler’s new label Elicit Records. Unstoppable, in January 2024 the elusive maestro participated in Eurosonic Noorderslag and was awarded the number 12 of best acts by 3voor12. Influenced by experimental electronic luminaries like Aphex Twin and Overmono, his sound is sure to be enjoyed by fans of the aforementioned as well as those of Four Tet, Bicep and Fred Again

‘we_glitch’ is an epic piece of Future Garage music, with SUBFICTION deftly drawing influence from UK warehouse styles. A distorted, gritty breakbeat carries a contrastingly delicate synth that weaves around the groove. Dreamy, atmospheric chords are occasionally punctuated by glitchy, pitched-up vocals, creating a hypnotic listen that is impossible not to move to.

SUBFICTION shared: “‘we_glitch’ is my sonic journey through the glitchy heart of underground house. It’s where skittering breakbeats meet twisted vocals and the ethereality of future-garage, creating a hypnotic groove that’ll have you lost in the glitch with me, the mysterious glitchmeister, aka SUBFICTION.”
