Rather than tying his tracks to a linear beat, Tzusing deploys drums at key moments, avoiding the usual build-up and release model in favour of something more explosive. He recently compared his approach with a motorcyclist zipping between slow cars on a crowded road. The kick drums on tracks like "Flow State" and "風雲再起" are animated, lunging forward as if chasing after something. Extra samples, like gun shots between the drums on "Shame," make the EP feel more breathless and jumpy.
Tzusing's onslaught isn't just about percussion, as sounds are stretched until they sound threatening. Taiwanese throat singing—a new touch—adds a sinister dimension to his blackened beats. And when he throws in breaks on "地心引力抓不住你" and plays with horror movie tropes on "得意先生," even familiar sounds feel exciting. Tzusing has become one of techno's most exciting artists by throwing genre doctrine to the wayside. That giddy irreverence makes In A Moment A Thousand Hits one of the most exhilarating techno records of the year.
