12" Vinyl D
Ken Sumitani aka Stereociti prod. blinding set of Electro futurism & Dub Techno
Waveguide might seem like a new artist addition to a.r.t.less’ roster, but it’s Mojuba’s japanese mainstay Stereociti presenting his new alter ego focussing on Techno side of things. In contrast to Stereociti Waveguide is approaching different methods in sound design and actual composition ranging back to the raw energy of the very beginning of Ken Sumitani’s musical journey.
Quod EP starts off with the title track and immerges you instantly into a sonic sea of swirling repetitive chords, riding on the wave of a steady ever forwarding bass tone carried by the steady kick and graced with echoing synth stabs and syncopated hats along the way.
The second track Tightrope is raising the tempo propels you right into to space on a funky broken beat lurching through space debris and stardust while catch glimpses of beautiful supernovas while trying to elude those gravitational forces caused by black holes.
Lemma the EP’s third title is carrying on the tempo and the broken funk if its predecessor but delivers a friendlier outlook with whirling and swelling melodies, like it wants to prepare you for the final adventure of this tonal journey.
Cubic Root closes out the first Waveguide mission on Mojuba sub label a.r.t.less with an orchestra of tripping acid basslines accompanied by dripping like synth leads exploring the polymetric realm of Techno in an always evolving echo chamber. As usual we love to encourage you to discover the tunes for your self and let the music do the talking, enjoy! [info from Label]
