Beautifully creepy, hypnotic, with brooding and tense atmospheres seconded by an avalanche of electronic grooves obtained by the machines.
A few months after the publication of their innovative and futurist electronic downtempo (+ –), Snowbeasts duet (Robert Galbraith and Elizabeth Virosa) is back on the France’s M-Tronic imprint for an album exclusively made of remixes taken from past materials.
Once more the two sound artists explore the borders of industrial dark ambient and some breakbeat techno infused with elements of electronic body music. This album is without any doubt more devoted to automatic and digitized rhythmical patterns than their first offers under the moniker. Rmx gives a more goth-underground clubbing-like color to the usual musical signature of the project. The album is beautifully creepy, hypnotic, with brooding and tense atmospheres seconded by an avalanche of electronic grooves obtained by the machines. This is one surgical and ferociously dark, chilling, pulsating and tripped out electronic album. To get an idea imagine something between In the Nursery, Lustmord, old school industrial EBM and materials from Kompakt. As in most of Snowbeasts’ albums, the music also features a dystopian and cinematic feeling. This new album presents a welcomed collection of remixes, in two words: minimal and gloomy.
Rmx is available on M-Tronic.
