Once again Om Unit proves the diversity of his label roster with this nine track compilation full with tunes that won’t fit into any genre category.
“Sun Glitters returns with the four-track EP, Fading Days. “Tell Me, Why You” starts things off with pulsating synths and pitch-shifted vocals working together to create a dream-like haze. “I Tear You Apart” uses side-chain interplay between kick, snare and bass to throw an off-kilter stop-and-go motion against a pitched vocal that is both sweet and unsettling. The title track, “Fading Days” highlights the shoegaze influences in Sun Glitters productions as the track engulfs the listener in a bed of fuzz. “Here It Comes” closes the EP with a wash of buzzing synths and etherial pads. Fading Days is the latest in a string of remarkably consistent releases from Sun Gltters. This EP was also included as the bonus tracks for the Japanese release of the LP, Scattered Into Light.”
“Since his last album, XTRNGR has been immersed into the creation of his new work for Discontinu records. Together, his last album brought him to various festivals such as Sónar, Mutek and Mira. He has also released an EP in Outlier recordings and has collaborated in various remixes.
Now he wants to introduce us to Climbing, an album that evolves towards an iconoclastic and futuristic sound and a chameleonic variety of styles. His already familiar atmospheres are more obscure this time, leading the listener to randomly fantasize.
Now his style is more open, flexible and wide, but also fast and dangerous. The dance-floor oriented tracks have deeper and heavier breaks while the contemplative ones show crunchy textures and inventive shapes, far from any plug-in associated aesthetic. Like a shot of pure electricity. The voice of MissQ contributes to a more organic perception of sound.
When the listening is over, one has the feeling of having been lost in the substances that create the electronic cosmos of our times.”
Out 18th August, the next Donky Pitch release comes from Chicago based artist Starfoxxx. ‘Baby I’m Off Drugs And I’m Ready To Marry You’ is a 12 track full length that takes the listener in a multitude of musical and rhythmical directions – from smudged 4×4 to hazy psychedelia, widescreen synth pop and saturated ambient, all the while connected by a strong sense of melody and a unique personality that stands out across each track.
