DJ Screendoor - Virtual Sunset (2018)
FILE UNDER: Deconstructed Club, Bass, Future Bass
Offering a dreamlike template of psychedelic themes for off-world raving, packed with bracingly fresh skeletal 808 patterns perfused with hyper-criss foley and thrillingly sheer synthetic textures, hyper-sharp tessellations and decimated club constructions.
Finding and opening fissures of possibility in the facade and body of current club music, with a unique approach to meter, space and tone: it challenges the way we dance; probes and teases our pleasure centre's tolerance for off-kilter, oily tones and soured timbre.
Perhaps it's not gratifying in the conventional sense of breakdowns, regular rhythms and sweaty peaks, but it more than makes up for it with strange, unknown pleasures and a quietly unsettling sort of future shock. The where next for modern, rhythm-driven electronic music - - a contemporary conflux of avant club, folk and noise musics.
