Fans waiting for Gescom to get back together for their infrequent ventures in the studio will be comforted by Ignatius‘ knack for creating parallel distortions of submerged exp-electro—a strong collection of lightly dusted stray tracks of heavy bass, beats and astute sound design. Though we’ve made the comparison to Gescom before, rest-assured that Strays is engulfing with its elongated track lengths of deconstructed audio morphing.
As Buried In Time continues to carve its own niche in an overly saturated field of electronics, what stands the test of time is the effort, quality and passion embedded within each of their offerings. But just as this Pacific Northwest imprint delves into all manner of left-field sounds, Ignatius remains a tough act to follow. His sonic creations feel alive, almost as if injected with organic ingredients that merge perfectly alongside neighboring electrons. Blending melodic minimalism above maximum lava flows, these stretched pieces of articulated grooves slither across the ears and are reminiscent of the muddied and brooding rhythms of Einoma. Ignatius did well to uncover these misplaced gems of bubbling electro contortions and fidgeting low-end as did Buried In Time to (finally) reveal them for us earthlings.
