about

Allans work tends to be on the more abstract side of techno, with uncomfortable, fractured, alien productions being his overall sound. For this Singularity EP there is a slightly more defined, visceral, emotional hue to the works. The Black Divinity is tense, pulsing, laid back rhythms underpin a moving, fluid and unsettling score that reminds us of Gyoergy Ligeti. It is a long drop into the abyss with this piece. The crash into darkness is followed by Virtue of Sin. The tight, almost funk tainted rhythm is matched with a constant drone, sounding like the inner workings of an electrical sub station, you are led into a state of blank faced hypnosis by the process, never quite comfortable enough for a peaceful enlightenment. Black Blood Light pounds away with a deep, open, analogue kick and sub once again providing the constant pulse underneath the more abstract lead drone that crackles and pops with electricity, initially aggressively, but eventually the repetition becomes more anaesthetic in effect, leading you into that calm place you might find at challenger deep, the deepest part of the ocean. Death Fed Prowler is horrific. A thousand flies swarm over you, pouring into you, infesting you with some rust based biosynthetic disease. Your blood seizes up, turns to powder, you choke on oxidisation. The heavy half step kick underneath merely times the process. A countdown to disintegration. We finish with Alive Yet Dead. A testament to the world of sleepwalkers. Hypnotic but at the same time pain inducing, a perfect end to this EP. Overall this release is matte black. Dark has become a cliche word in techno, with many misunderstanding the meaning. The music on this EP is truly dark, without cliche, a genuine ride into the Abyss.
