][uron :: Tracks 2008-2010 (Self-Released)

Tracks 2008-2010 is a great starting point for the Huron sound—a musical curriculum vitae that features relaxed, next-level electronic audio-works. From post-industrial slivers to dark-ambient realms, soundtrack-driven themes are elevated to reveal new layers of isolation. Steffen Schröder (better known as the prolific Huron) has been on my radar for several years. Continuing to cultivate futuristic […]

Theory :: Red Book EP (Mindtrick)

Theory (aka Russian native Antuan Graftio), elicits a turbulent, muddy and distopian musical trove within each piece. Theory delivers for Mindtrick, what Tangent did in for the imprint a few years ago on 1mk2. The difference, however, is that Theory manages to unleash a more robust industrial influence, whereas Tangent was described as being “inspired […]

An extended player that opens a plateau of low-flying, lo-fi electronics and mysterious midnight sonic emissions. Eusebeia (aka Seb Watts) is a new alias to these ears, and a welcomed addition to the music library after having been the closure track on the excellent Frequencies of the Mind III compilation with the vocal dust-clouds of “In […]

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 […]

Tangent :: Transience (Tympanik Audio)

Tangent combines dense musical forces that compliment the circular cosmic spot we all inhabit. We wrote about Tangent’s debut 1mk2 (Mindtrick, 2013) described as “…a slice of cosmic detail, broken into ten distinctive fragments that melt together,” and now they’ve reemerged (unsurprisingly) via Tympanik Audio’s conduit for enraptured sonic chaos. Transience doesn’t veer too far […]

Delete :: Neva EP (Mindtrick)

Mysterious Russian producer Delete operates in one of the many branches of the step scene with a particular brand of past garage. It’s strange how musical genres ebb and flow. Many of the originators of the whole dubstep scene have now turned to house, techno and disco as their sound of choice. Very odd—to spawn an incredibly inventive […]

Pythius :: Downward Spiral EP (Mindtrick)

A collection of downbeat spirals of luminous electronics, Pythius’ sound isn’t really drum’n bass, dubstep or tribal.
