Hecq :: Horror Vacui (Hymen)

Among the cataclysmic beats, atmospheric debris, noisy elements and brushed electronics, Hecq manages to once again display unconventional yet coherent music that defies categorization.

Hecq (aka Ben Lukas Boysen) continues to baffle the mind with mechanically enriched detail and on Horror Vacui we see the prolific artist unleash some unreleased gems of the past decade with remixes that finally see the light of day. While administered as sonic artifacts, Horror Vacui is quite literally an artistic snapshot featuring Hecq’s meticulous skills which blend just about every genre and sub-genre into an organized audio assortment. Among the cataclysmic beats, atmospheric debris, noisy elements and brushed electronics, Hecq manages to once again display unconventional yet coherent music that defies categorization. Minimal clicks and cuts filled with lightly scattered fog and emotive greys are on offer as ambient textures shift back and forth between explosive percussion and instrumental bliss. The remixers offer a slight tangent in the field of their expertise—recognized as scene purveyors without question. As Horror Vacui may come across as dusted-off manifests from the past, it further embeds Hecq’s signature into the vast sonic landscape of technologically advanced music with focused emotive rhythms.

Horror Vacui is available on Hymen.
