Last year it was estimated, that every minute 400 hours' worth of content was uploaded to YouTube, 2,430,555 posts were liked on Instagram, and 6,944,444 videos were watched on Snapchat. And these figures won't stay static. The amount of data we upload, and in turn the amount we consume every year, is growing exponentially. As this expanding data pool grows, making sense of it becomes concurrently more difficult; the distinctions between dream and reality, fact and fiction, truth and lie fade to obscurity.‘Information City’, the sophomore album from Copenhagen's Tobias Hjørnet Pedersen aka Beastie Respond, attempts to reflect this world in a very direct sense. ‘Information City’ is the simulacrum in which we live and exist, where our cultural identities exist primarily as representations of a real without origin, he explains.Writing the album Pedersen set no limits on his sample sources, instead taking fragments from a vast array of media, reflecting on the themes outlined above. This resulted in ‘Information City‘ being completely stylistically unchained, giving reference to everything from UK bass genres to electro, footwork and synthwave. 'Downloaded 4 R. D4wkins' for example pits Moving Shadow reminiscent rave stabs against juke-like percussive workouts, while opener 'Real Without Origin' recontextualises cliché trap-style drops with hollowed-out, swaggering low-end, calling to mind recent hybrids of UK Grime and American hip-hop.

Straying away from the standardized charts of dance music, Metalized Man's debut album for newly established label Foul-Up operates in the gap between strictly visually-evocative audio spaces and more abstract realms, trimming its tech-y ambient apparatus right to the bone.After two iterations on the Copenhagen-based Infinite Waves, Lasse Bjørck Volkmann delivers a first long-player rich of a spectrum that extends from the murkiest shades to the brightest hues with a zest of trancey tropes, exploring both extremes with a manifest attraction for offhand live dynamics. Whereas it deploys its own sensory experience, 'Losing Your Virginity: Metalized Boy's First Adventures in Manhood' reacts and evolves like a steady biotope submitted to diverse levels of pressure, constantly shifting scales and tempo – from a deep green palette of organic drops and crackles to the sleek vibrancy of multi-faceted synthetic layers – punctured by paranoid ostinatos that ooze nothing but stress and insecurity. As its title suggests it is an initiatory hand-to-hand with the unknown – either a beginning or an ending, but anyhow a fully conscious descent in the most secret nooks of a troubled inner being in search for answers.Just like Edward Artemiev's elemental soundtrack to Tarkovsky's masterpiece 'Stalker' played an essential role in enhancing the film's highly empirical experience, or Badalamenti's iconic contribution to David Lynch's utterly hypnotic, trance-inducing body of work, 'Losing Your Virginity...' shines with a similar poise for setting up its own deeply evocative cinematic playgrounds. Images rise to the surface in a deftly-manoeuvered chaos of sound, elusive like sand gliding from one's hand but haunting like a first time. There is frailty and strength, despair and also ecstasy but more importantly, there is a bigger-than- life quality to this fine collection of mazy proto-tech and drone slabs, that seems to not only emulate concepts for what they are but also what they go against. Proposing rather than proclaiming, questioning rather than answering – moving feverishly as we all do, unsure of what tomorrow holds but well avid to disclose its omens.
Misantrop - Limerence
12" | 2016 | EU | Original (Foul-Up)
11,69 €* 12,99 € -10%
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
* ‘Limerence’ is not only Misantrop's debut outing, it is also the inaugurating release of his own label Foul-Up. * The sound pops out of an industrial mindset, but the title piece reverses out of garage/classic house that nods to 90s r’n’b. On ‘Nocturnal Emission’ friend Jon Marius Brogaard Aeppli’s guitar solo is vogueing out on the floor, psychedelic rock meets psychotic blues by way of sheer UK sound. * Featuring a wobbling bass on the techno-leaning ‘No. 3’ - adorned with a reference to classical composition in the cluster strings. “They Don’t Know” puts on a bit of electro, noise and some giallo synth arpeggiation. There’s shine, atmosphere and a rather fascinating depth of field.* ‘Limerence’ draws its inspiration from all over contemporary music and noise grounds - not wearing its ‘influences’ in the most opulent manner but well declaring its material with confidence. If the finished product doesn’t have the uniformity of a proper industrial product, so much the better…* Misantrop is out to change the way you listen to music, no matter how chaotic the journey is, showing off a vision that’s both deeply human and richly transcendent.
