Roel Funcken :: Skinetic Culpture EP (Self Released)

Somehow Roel Funcken has managed to tap into this strange mess of bass infestations, wrinkled digital wobbles, crumbling technoid hip-hop and a mass of beatified corruption on the new Skinetic Culpture EP.

Roel Funcken 'Skinetic Culpture'

[Release page] What happens when twisted wires connected to analog synths and broken laptops get tossed in the mud? Now, as the picture blurs in your mind, could you imagine the same sounds slithering their way onto the dance floor? Somehow Roel Funcken has managed to tap into this strange mess of bass infestations, wrinkled digital wobbles, crumbling technoid hip-hop and a mass of beatified corruption on the new Skinetic Culpture EP. If Roel’s background of maneuvering electrical structures with brother Don and his current iteration of electronics is any indication of a future direction, it’s clear that this project will appeal to a wide(r) audience in search of distorted vocal treatments mixed against heavily processed percussion. Hailing earlier fragments of Funckarma’s Shadowhuntaz moniker (listen to “Due Tratt” as a prime example; vocals coming from Shadow2), this extended player breaks through experimental terrain, loosens the gravel and sprinkles the remains on rotating gears yielding purely corrupted data. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Skinetic Culpture‘s ricocheting rhythms gravitate through darkened DJ sets across this circular cosmic spot as the crowds eat it up.

Roel tears the mold apart by combining IDM, jazz, dubstep, hip-hop and gritty electronics into four high-energy sonic manifests.

Skinetic Culpture is out now. [Release page]
