Download: DJ Hell "The Angst Pt. 1"

Label: Gigolo

The word "teufelswerk"—which also happens to be the title of DJ Hell's forthcoming full-length—is German for "Devil's Work," so it's no surprise the lead single off the album is a rather ominous blend of brooding electronics and slow, steady guitar riffs. Tracks on the album take the theme of either night or day, and it’s not hard to tell which one this falls under. "The Angst" is out February 23.
