You Might Not Like This X EMOM
EMOM was started to provide a space in which electronic musicians could meet and play music with a view to promoting this often overlooked form of music making. Nights have taken place in Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol, London, Coventry and Salford.
The approaches to music making have varied enormously, ranging from modular to groove boxes and loop stations, from live coding to synthesisers and launch pads, and many more. This compilation album includes a representatively diverse sample of such music.
A double-disc full of resplendent delights, from the haunting spoken-word ambient drone of 'A Collection Of Notes', turning into a churning cosmic synth odyssey, Lizzie Bradley's scattered Kosmische glitch and thundering percussion on 'Why Don't'. Offset with more haunting gothic numbers like the hazy crepuscular hum of TOOM or the icy euphoric synthwave of Elle Call. There is a wealth of talent creeping through every fibre of this underground compilation, and it wouldn't be surprising at all to see this very release mentioned as the start of a good number of careers. Killer stuff.
