Erratic :: Downward Echoes EP (Acre)

A mixture of downtempo glitch, textured electro, gritty rhythms and eerie electronic devices leave the listener to unveil skewed ambient swirls on Downward Echoes.

Such cohesive audible distortion couldn’t have come at a better time. A mixture of downtempo glitch, textured electro, gritty rhythms and eerie electronic devices leave the listener to unveil skewed ambient swirls on Downward Echoes—Erratic’s debut for Acre Recordings.

Sizzling tones morphed and connected to Phoenecian landscapes draw the ears in as you begin to loose track of sonic space. In only a mere five snapshots, darkened pads make their way into the subconscious. “Stargate Metropolis” slithers about in a post-dub vein, broken rhythmic shards bend and twist in futurist mechanical sheets. “Silent Explosion” slows the process down with (William Burroughs) vocal samples and soundtrack dynamics molded to static shapes and shady atmospheres as “Glazing Domes On Silver Skies” creates an upbeat UK garage-styled trove of mood shifts. “Flotation Dub” is an apt title as hovering tonal layers flicker among low-flying DSP elements. The title track emits a haze of form and function—broken oscillators weave between crunchy synth noises and synaptic pitter-patter percussion.

Fans of Buried In Time, Schematic and Touchin’ Bass will enjoy Erratic’s deployment of fuzzy leftfield electro manifests. A full-length follow-up would be the ideal as this extended player is perfectly executed.

Downward Echoes is available on Acre.
