London producer Moiré is set to debut on Actress' Werkdiscs imprint next week with the four-track Never Sleep EP. Pulled from the forthcoming record is "Into," a cerebral piece of beatwork that rides through icey pads, distant vocal samples, and all sorts of hazy textures at a cool, 120-plus bpm. Although it clocks in around a dancefloor-friendly tempo, "Into" isn't a standard house or techno track by any means, but is more reminscent of a BNJMN-style tune, with an extra dose of Actress-approved weirdness thrown in for good measure. Moiré's debut effort officially drops on February 4.
