Valance Drakes / Cyuild Apo :: Double review (Luana / Clean Error)

Yielding various connotations based on who might be delve into these disjointed electrical tones, a data splurge unfolds from each audio architect and is accurately manifested in a brief stint with Luana and Clean Error.

cyuild-apo_valance-drakes-dbl_featSo many crumpled audio tentacles veer, sway and flicker their bass-infused rudiments with a sense of control. Valance Drakes and Cyuild Apo—the latter is a collaboration between Valance Drakes and Enabl.ed—create their own low-end mulching variant of glitched DSP. Extracting the finest particulate matter through minimized emotive strands, both releases carry fractured noise and colliding protons.

Cyuild Apo’s Memory To Recall Its Existence tantalizes the brain via a smorgasbord of vibratory basslines and crisp percussive crunching—busted rhythmic slurs and sonic deformation are always in the foreground. Valance Drakes exhibits a more contemplative sojourn on Wisdom Comes Through Struggle via parallel access ways, however, he calms the production down slightly as his machinery seems to break down into experimental melodic slabs.

There are a myriad of deconstructed genres piercing through the haze including, but not limited to ambient, IDM, glitch, experimental, soundtrack and drone. So as these two unique outfits interconnect a total of five tracks—both EP’s separately released, mind you—the result is a fluid musical concoction balanced with distress signals that hint at how strange sounds can deliver an important message. Yielding various connotations based on who might be delve into these disjointed electrical tones, a data splurge unfolds from each audio architect and is accurately manifested in a brief stint with Luana and Clean Error.

Valance Drakes’ Wisdom Comes Through Struggle and Cyuild Apo’s Memory To Recall Its Existence are available on Luana and Clean Error, respectively.
