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.
Made over 2 years entirely synthesized & composed in Csound in the orthodox `list` form of programing. Ranges from tidy clean & discrete shakers & 808 booms to post house workups w/chopped + processed female voices.
Debut release from O.S.T. under his Rook Valard moniker showcases his approach to dark electronic soundscapes which he would later take to labels such as Simballrec, Plug Research, Diskono, Worm Interface, and Emanate.
