The ever-evolving Hackman releases 'Semibreves' on L.A. based Halocyan

L.A based label Halocyan follow up a slew of high-profile releases from the likes of Paul Woolford, Arkist, Raudive and Gravious with the next coming courtesy of the ever-evolving Hackman backed up with exemplary remixes from Timo Maas and KiNK. Hackman has been a staple of the UK scene for a number of years now, with back catalogue that’s touched imprint's such as 20:20 Vision, Futureboogie, Greco-Roman and Rampa offshoot PTN. As an artist he’s consistently diversified his signature sound lying in a combination of bass-heavy arrangements and low-slung garage rhythms - akin to the ethos of Halocyan - he has kept one foot firmly in dance music’s rich history as well as looking forwards with each release. His latest offering ‘Semibreves’ shows Hackman returning to the tougher, more armoured facet of his catalogue epitomised by his collaboration with Tessela on Audio Culture back in 2011. First up on remix duties is Rockets & Ponies co-founder Timo Maas; a stalwart experimentalist who has earned his stripes across a vast and varied back catalogue. His take on ‘Grass Green’ melds rasping bass tones with twisted and eerie melodies that roll out over an elongated breakdown. Next up is KiNK whose penchant for analogue circuitry is manifested across his harmonious remix of ‘Semibreves’ - swooning synth propel a major / minor shift as his rattling drums keep the pressure up throughout and bolster another solid addition to the Halocyan series. Tracklist; 1. Semibreves 2. Grass Green (Orthographically Historicized by Timo Maas) (Timo Maas remix) 3. Grass Green 4. Semibreves (Epi Phylogenetically Enumerated Reset by KiNK) (KiNK remix) Release Date: 27th April 2015
