Nearfield :: G5 (Brainstormlab)

Distinctive, late 90’s IDM hues are in full force—robust percussion, distant melodies and heavy bass jabs scatter throughout each piece.

Belarus-based Nearfield continue to shuffle, mince and break apart exp-electronic music until only the roots are exposed. The duo seamlessly refine and migrate the finest in wide-angle glitch productions, with G5 being their latest installment. It’s a welcomed addition to anyone’s extended music library, and one that’s been on repeat for a couple of weeks straight.

Distinctive, late 90’s IDM hues are in full force—robust percussion, distant melodies and heavy bass jabs scatter throughout each piece. Recalling to mind Autechre’s LP5 (Warp), Richard Devine’s self-titled EP (Schematic), and Monolake’s Interstate (Imbalance Computer Music)—all from 1998-1999—Nearfield adds a 2017 twist. Culling fragments from the past and morphing them into next-level audio works, G5 reveals a supernova of mechanically fine-tuned musical formations.

G5 is available on Brainstormlab.
