Nonima :: Recur (Section 27)

Recur is choke-full of mechanically-infused electronic mayhem that is ever so lightly shielded by its tranquilized downtrodden shimmer. Section 27 founder Nonima (aka Tam Ferrans) reveals Recur, a diverse and abstract electronic abyss that segues into and out of consciousness. Take the opening “Recursor” as a starting point—elongated sounds from another galaxy expand and contract […]

Igloo Magazine :: Best of 2016

While other sites might fight to get 1000s down to 50 or 20, at Igloo HQ we’ve refused to don the hair shirt of reducing respective contributor lists to a consensual singularity, in favour of doing justice to diversity via lists that range far and wide, and a congruent preference for letting their multiplicity simply […]

exm :: llmnt (Touched Music)

The album abounds with weird, wonderful sounds, complex rhythms, cold, haunting melodies and a whole lot of dark, dim elements that make it a great listen as a whole.
