Brendon Moeller – Passage To Obscurity [AS002]

Atrophic Society welcomes Brendon Moeller for it s second release, delivering 2 deeply textured and emotive technoscapes. Wielding a warbled bassline and synthetic bleeps with a masters touch, the title track meanders within a natural landscape, fuzzing and washing around descending chirps and following the call of a distant foghorn, leading us through the Passage to Obscurity.Vohkinne takes the delicacies of the original and hammers them into submission, where the original meanders the remix charges, bringing the distant foghorn into focus as a challenging and stubborn lead. Closing out the EP, Contents Under Pressure surges forward with an insistent Bleep, purging and cleansing itself through gnarling bass, never questioning its purpose as it takes you to a higher state.

Unbalance – Unbalance#6 [UNBALANCE006]

Alexander Matlahov’s self-released series of 12″s sees the sixth installment the Russian producer is diving into grainy industrial textures and restrained menace. “Devastation” worms its way into a streamlined cycle with the usual Unbalanced style of intricate rhythm, using vast sweeps of unsettling tones to steer the energy in the track. “Advent” is a decidedly warmer affair that exudes melodic warmth with rich layers of synth and a heart-rending string line. “Long Waiting” however sees a return to more icy tones with another detailed and dub-infected beat.
