Our Sunday selection:
XPATME – URANION (XPATME, DGT01)
Hailing from Milan, Italy, up and coming artist XPATME greets us with tales from his modular synth and drum machine in this peek preview of his new album, set for release in December. Reminding us of the beauty and power of industrial techno, these 4 tracks hold a charge suitable for filling a vast and dark warehouse full of techno lovers. Each of them was written and produced by Carlo Toma AKA XPATME, who is also the man behind Sound Anarchy Re- cords, and mastered in Berlin by Alhek. In addition to this, the artwork was created by Karmagraphic.
MADRE DEL CAOS introduces us to XPATME’s experimental style, with bellow- ing robotic groans of the synth producing an exciting and atmospheric sound. Secondly, SINGULARITY rolls out over a thumping bassline, with an enticing build up that takes us on a journey through space and time. The third preview track, POINT OF NO RETURN grapples with a more twisted groove, giving rise to ethereal alien-like cries from the darker chasms of XPATME’s soundscape. Last but not least, FAITHFUL TO THE LINE calls us to attention with a punching drumbeat, painted over with abstract melodies from the modular synth that provides a real contribution to the industrial techno genre.
Overall, this is a very promising preview that leaves us wanting to hear a lot more from XPATME.
