Split EP of future-wave IDM talent from the greater northwest. (A) contains a pair of finely formed midtempo beat-flicker gems w/occasional distorted drum-machine imaging & soft supple melodic iconography. Flip feats mellow dub-flecked track.
CNS Engineering creats a new maximalist fusion of all forms of machine music from immersive ambience to thick techno & broken breaks. On flip Monkey+1 takes no prisoners with his downtempo breakbeat destruction yet maintains a steady Hip-Hop flavor.
After countless comps & split 12`s here is debut full-length humanizing swung clank from his machines to turn loose scores of strange ocean floor crawlers. Broken prog acid lines & sandbox melodies temper elaborate epics of janky analog electro.
Croatian computer technician Robert Merlak is too out there for IDM based electronica, too lo-fi for musique concrete consideration. Nauseating synthesis of neurotic drones and wildly spinning drum machine eruptions make up the most of "Albumski,"
