TüTH :: Transgression (Umor Rex)

Sometimes, a release falls into your hands which has only magic about it; hearing the first bars, the long and guttural machine cough which it gives out, you close your eyes in anticipation. Transgression transfixes itself within the body, crunching through the listening ear—alert, cunning, and yet almost intolerably gigantic. It is music both depersonalized and […]

Elsewhereness revisited #6 here come the warm jest

Elsewhereness revisited is an occasional feature documenting the drift at the margins: ambient gasbagging, tube-d, cloud-ed, and camp-ed up, complete with companion mix, Elsewhereness revisited #6.  Serving suggestions for lovers of electronic pioneers, or in this case those carrying on the torch, and for hand-finish fanciers: Agri Montana (Café Kaput) is inspired by Alpine landscapes, and, you’d’ve thought, […]

Driftmachine :: Colliding Contours (Umor Rex)

The duo have mastered the art of shifting and sliding synthesized blocks into echoed detours. By reconfiguring ever so slowly, each minuscule bit develops into vast audible sub-structures. Eroded dub drones and corrosive industrial hypnotics are in focus with Berlin’s Driftmachine, their latest titled Colliding Contours is available on Mexico’s Umor Rex. Continuing to stretch modular […]

Driftmachine :: Eis Heauton EP (Umor Rex)

Charlatan :: Local Agent (Umor Rex)

Fractured analog sounds joined by a myriad of abstract low-end squeaks and somewhat controlled synths. Brad Rose—known for his work as Digitalis label-head—moves ahead with Local Agent for Umor Rex and unveils leftfield technoid slabs and processed noise for abstract dub enthusiasts to consume. “Blur Suit” and “Nightmaring” both exude bubbling modular activity and low […]
