Metasplice – Metasplice [BR005LP]

Philly’s Metasplice are back with another double LP’s worth of unique soundscapes. To be sure, they’re previous sides for Morphosis’s Morphine label and they’re own imprint _bruxist have been some of the most engaging works of electronic music in recent memory. This collection of new works is even more arresting and vital.

Now here it comes the serious business. Because there are so many good albums and different genders, I took the same approach as in the 2012’s review.

The list is covering all the genders that I like and post on The Hipodrome Of Music, so I came up with no more than 20 gender lists, going from house to techno, disco and funk to electro and new wave …

Here we go.

Metasplice – Infratracts [DOSER017LP]

Rabih Beaini’s Morphine imprint has undergone something of a renaissance in the past year to become one of contemporary techno’s most vital labels thanks to the recent material from Hieroglyphic Being, Container, Upperground Orchestra and Philadelphia duo Metasplice, whose two EPs for the label have provided some of the most alien sounding techno to emerge in recent years. Their debut album Infratracts appeared this week with no prior fanfare; it’s as exciting a journey into the duo’s uniquely desolate sound world as you could imagine; combining skull-shattering rhythms with brain-warping textures, the whole things recalls a seasick version of Container’s noise techno being transmitted via SETI’s long-range radio telescope.

Both tracks are spectacular floating grooves that immerse the listener in the group’s unique and intense headspace.”

Metasplice – Topographical Interference EP [DOSER012]

“Metasplice is a twisted debussy-esque of primal drums+chords over top of the chaos.
the sound of an atom splitting.
the sound of a nuclear explosion; the sound of the end of the world…
dialogue between an electronic experiment in nature and a synthesizer.”
Traxx (Nation, Chicago)
