Breaths Written Outside GloomMp3s & jpegs
November will find Delsin release a new EP from Voiski entitled Breaths Written Outside Gloom that features four cuts of the Frenchman's trademark techno. Before now he has released solo and with various others on labels such as LIES and Syncrophone and always manages to cook up gurgling grooves and textured tracks that take you deep down the rabbit hole. Opener 'Downhearted Holidays' is all about a menacing bassline that looms large below jostling metal percussion and frazzled synth lines. It's spare and absorbing, inhuman and bleak in the most inviting way. 'Galaxy Call' is a more energetic affair with squeaking, pixelated and high pitched melodies squealing over a gloomy and gloopy bass line. Militant snares are upright and driven and the result is a track that sounds like the machines are taking over. 'Mathematical Park' is about mid tempo drums, paranoid synth drones and desolate urban soundscapes all run through with a sense of dark futurism and finally 'Answer Silently' is the slowest and swampiest of the lot. A growing sense of darkness permeates slithering synths, icy hi hats and lazy drums and there is a real air of foreboding through this and all the cuts here that make it perfect night time music.
