Porya Hatami :: Phone To Logos (Audiobulb)

Overall, Phone to Logos details a process by which Hatami’s early and more linear ambience has given way to more disruptive and complex sound signatures, distortion, and rhythms—these do not detract from his clearly brilliant field-recording, but rather work to better depict the complex textures and behaviors of organic and non-organic materials and landscapes. Porya […]

Techno’s Outer Limits :: July 2016

Latest emission from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs, 12″s & LPs with notes in the margins.  First Italy, where Dino Sabatini has launched the Outis Opera sub-series with a first album since Shaman’s Paths (‘view here), from which Omonimo notably departs; as much on a downtempo and trip-hop tip as on an Italian deep techno template of the type co-designed inter alii with […]

Quinoline Yellow :: Palisade Mount EP (Touchin’ Bass)

The melodies are structured to remain accessible, mysteriously distant yet oddly uplifting. Percussion and rhythms are sci-fi cerebral and, whilst unashamedly experimental in that Warp/Skam ethos, will have you busting your favorite robot moves and cranking up the volume (again). With seemingly no end in sight of unexpected releases in 2013, there comes another in […]
