Premiere: Sin Maldita – Wildfire Choir
The flames burned brightly, spitting out orange embers as they crackled and hissed abrasively. She’d taken to setting fires in the garden each evening; she called it her daily purge. In silence she would sit cross-legged staring directly into the flames, sometimes for hours and hours until the flames dwindled and a pile of ash would take its place.

Sin Maldita is the new moniker of Berlin-based producer and Amnesia Scanner collaborator Tim Roth, also known for his work under 1K Flowers. His debut album, You’re Trouble, dances on the fringes of beauty and chaos, creating a striking juxtaposition of jagged, abrasive rhythms with serene and harmonic atmospheres and chords. Seemingly defying genre and boundary, his androgynous take on avant-gard pop blended with elements of experimental club music urges you to listen and examine, and to “find relief in imperfection and the in-between”.
