Negadigit :: Negadigit EP (Self-Released)

 As this 5-piece extended player was culled from live studio sessions in Detroit, it is clear that Negadigit are enjoying the craft of disjointed electronics lathered with analogous transmissions.

Negadigit :: Negadigit EPNegadigit is Christopher Todd (aka Phylum Sinter) and Dan Richert who recently connected samplers and synthesizers into a maze of bursting activity for their self-titled EP. A pulse of electronic distortion can’t be ignored here—seemingly raw in its production, a collection of decomposed signals are crossed with the patter of percussive Ae-induced rhythms.

“hello bumps” displays a wash of glitchy speed bumps buzzing with technoid undercurrents of chaotic construction. Samples coalesce into streams of experimental mutations and a lively energy that may sound best live appears in the foreground. “aliens/robots/bears” eclipses the eight-minute mark—demonstrating a merge of Arovane versus Phonem lava flows, tranquilized melody blurs and nostalgic data mining. “crazyspaceshit” enables a Merck/Kracfive retrospect of odd time-signatures, buried vocals and skewed clips, blips and minimal clangs. “scanner,” perhaps the most coherent in audio-design, elicits swirling 8-bit distortions diluted in downtempo colors.

As this 5-piece extended player was culled from live studio sessions in Detroit, it is clear that Negadigit are enjoying the craft of disjointed electronics lathered with analogous transmissions. Such is the case with the closing piece (titled “submerged”) that reflects its warm gurgling of synths vying to communicate with each other. In the end, the listener will easily find an extraterrestrial soundtrack that will hopefully evolve into a further stream of sonic creativity for 2013.

Negadigit EP is available here.
