.Zigo has an apocalyptic “Blade Runner” world in his sonic conception. He swings comfortably between sulfuric sunrises, romantic evenings to the cyberpunk distopians.
This work, like his others; and many other things that I have enjoyed in concert, has its own peculiar character, the detail that blows the mind and that eccentricity carries it to work every detail like a careless tide, but he has the control, so many years on the path have not made him aloof, and he applies every consciousness, every experience.
It shows in the quality of the sound and in the domain of reaching the very edge of the break, without breaking.
Tiny pearls invade each of the tracks, and yes, he is one of the masters in this sense, in showing us that heavy noise with delicate sonic touches, that are not lost, on the contrary, he makes them be noticed.
In “Drupas migrantes” we hear from the beginning with “Zaxsibulan”, mantric drones that invade, and leave us almost perplexed to wait any longer.
We pass through quasi organic states like those in “Drupa” and “Ralokhao”, cyber-robotic moments like “Aeasxoolar” and “Drirl” to descend to the shamanic poetry of “Xeticanteral”.
Can this work be classified? It cannot – you can only listen and enjoy- qualifications do not count, just immerse yourself or be engulfed by it.
.Zigo without a doubt “is” in past, present and he shows the future, and all this comes together for capture us to hear.
.Zigo tiene el apocalipsis Bladeraniano (de “Blade Runner”) en su concepción del sonido. Se hamaca cómodamente entre amaneceres sulfúricos y atardeceres románticos a lo cyberpunk.
Este disco, como otros y muchas otras cosas que he disfrutado en vivo, tiene su peculiar sello, el detalle de la voladura de cabeza y esa excentricidad que lo lleva a trabajar cada detalle como en una descuidada marea, pero él tiene el control, tantos años de carrera no le son esquivos, y aplica cada conocimiento, cada experiencia.
Se nota en la calidad del sonido y en ese dominio de llegar hasta el borde mismo del quiebre, sin llegar a quebrarse.
Diminutas perlitas invaden cada uno de los tracks, y si, es uno de los maestros en este sentido, en mostrarnos ese heavy noise con delicados toques sonoros, que no se pierden, al contrario, los hace notar.
En “Drupas Migrantes” oímos desde el comienzo con “Zaxsibulan” drones mántricos que se nos vienen encima para invadirnos y dejarnos casi perplejos para esperar más.
Pasamos por estados cuasi orgánicos como en “Drupa” y “Ralonkhao”, ratos cyber-robóticos como “Aeasxoolar” y “Drirl” para descender a la poesía chamánica de “Xeticanteral”.
¿Cómo podemos calificar este disco señores? No se puede, solo se puede escuchar y disfrutar, los calificativos no cuentan en una obra tan completa, solo meterse en ella o ser engullida por ella.
.Zigo sin duda está en el pasado, el presente y nos muestra el futuro, y todo conjugado para que lo tomemos, para que lo oigamos.
TWG has always prided itself in its genre diversity. With the fourth in our line of final releases, Whitely brings us what is easily his most surprising and one of his best realised pieces yet. Indian influenced ambient music, with ethereal vocals provided by Whitely himself, thick in atmosphere, emotion and tension.
There is not much else that can be said about this release, other than it’s Whitely as you’ve never heard him before, a listening experience that is an experience as much as it is a journey, and that we’re incredibly proud to have this here on TWG. Not necessarily chiptune, but incredible all the same.
Chiptune is dead anyway, right?
Number three of the finals sees the release debut of ‘Manchester’s Top Geeza’ HODSON, of ex-Skin Walker fame, flexing his musical muscles under the weight of this titanic mixture of spoken word, dnb, glitch and trip hop.
Dispelling specific genre focus in favour of atmospheric and tonal meanderings, HODSON’s five track effort covers aeons of ground, self-regarded in genre terms by HODSON himself as one only named ‘Particular’. Using chiptune as just one of several instruments, only adding further colour to the rich patchwork of influences on show, HODSON also adds sampled vocals and his own spoken word to weigh down tracks with an emotional vibrancy not seen often within the scene. From the delicate duality of guitar tones and big beat-esque drums in ‘Pink & Blue’, to the thick, suffocated dnb in ‘Somewhere Down In The West’ or the throbbing almost acidic bass in ‘Out To Pasture’, Colours That Glow In The Dark is as surprising as it is diverse, and another welcome addition to the TWG roster that we are estatic to be bringing to you.
