About this item
Alex Jann returns to Censor for the label’s second excursion into the unknown with three direct communications and a mix of the title track from Rotterdam’s Animistic Beliefs.
The EP’s title track "Computoid.Transmission.X" is a pulsating drum workout laced with dystopian pads, laser-cut leads, anxious bass lines and an evocative mutant vocal from an A.I. system gaining consciousness.
Animistic Beliefs create a darker texture on their 'Electric Eye Mix' of the title track, sending the vocal and lead sound straight through the stratosphere via complex bass and arp phrases that filter and stalk around the lead bringing a deeper and more contrasting A2.
"Firewall Culture" comes as an intoxicating trip on the B1 with off-world FX, feral acid lines and a spacetime-defying style of vocal that haunt Alex’s work.
"Jupiter Storms" on the B2 ascends the EP to a higher plane with deep washes created from evolving pads adding space and movement to the final track of the release, all accented with glacial micro drops, syncopated beats and tight trickling synth sections. The release was mastered by Keith Tenniswood at Curve Pusher.
Look, I know you're totally barraged with nu-electro vibrations at the moment, but you can rely on us to sort the wheat from the chaff. And this is wholegrain goodness for all the 'fam! Keith Tenniswood's even involved for Christ's sake - it may as well have Her Majesty's seal of approval!
