Kronodigger :: ENC015 EP (Encrypted Audio)

Based in New York, Alexey Gorokholinskiy’s crafts sonic sculptures with utter clarity and visceral distortion. His Subliminal Design extended player from March 2015 marked a roughened breaks, bass and dub signature sound design and still echoes a year later (listen to “Chamaeleon” as a prime example). Now with the release of ENC015, a two track manifesto, Kronodigger yields even further refinement in the art of broken industrial bass. Both tracks spanning exactly 5-minutes and 32-seconds, “Electric Brain” kicks off with wobbly low-end shuffle and crunchy beat patterns and eventually decays into a digital signal processed haze. Its dark edges and atmospheric metallic noises are bent to extreme effect as a sped-up gritty synth rhythm emerges near its final minute. “Retribution,” on the other hand, flows in a more Subotnick / modular subconscious stream. A molten bass line is pulled through a ringing chime, the erratic experimental glitches and switches are buried to no end and a magnetic symphony organizes the broken dub turbulence midway. Perhaps an artist we should have looked out for at least a year ago, Kronodigger manufactures hard-edged kinetic electronics that merit further investigation.

ENC015 is available on Encrypted Audio.
