Audiokern - Raw Control EP [Klangkeller Records]


Audiokern - Raw Control EP [Klangkeller Records]

Swiss producer Audiokern presents his Raw Control EP reflecting his experimentations with modular sound creation, and persistent attitude that the music world is 'wide-open' via Klangkeller Records which includes a remix from Tobias.

Interestingly enough, the remix of the track Sorry by Tobias. appears two tracks before the original. This placement works to the advantage of the release with creeping minimalistic sound bytes that echo within a unique space giving a glimpse of the experimentation that will follow throughout the rest of the EP.

Broken Silence - puts the listener in what seems to be a perpetual surreal cycle, and evokes the feeling of being stuck in a barren wasteland. Samples that initially seem recognisable are distorted and transformed, while loud hums grate against the ears and low, thumping booms seem to predict impending doom.

Sorry - begins somewhat more steadily than it’s remix, with a regularly timed percussion pattern being interrupted sporadically by vocal clips. Events that trigger twirling patterns trailing behind them contribute to the somewhat disoriented mood. As the pace of the track slowly picks up, timing becomes more regular, all of the previously presented samples gain focus, and the chaotic is allowed to transform into the cohesive.

Raw Control - the grooviest track on the release, continues and expands upon the cohesive nature that can be heard at the end of 'Sorry' a contrast to many other moments on the EP that are full of uncertainty and purposeful juxtaposition. Squeaks, creaks, and mumbles punctuate the relentless rhythmic base, changing its nature by merely emphasising specific moments. Audiokern effectively hypnotises the listener putting them in a state of zoned-out attention.
