Boomkat product review for:

daniel menche - Quanta Of Light

**Limited, hand-stamped white label edition** Highly disciplined master of visceral intensity, Daniel Menche, presents a one-off album for Touch's great white label series. Daniel's work is gladly accepted by both noise and more "musical" spheres, releasing on a wealth of labels including Important Records, Editions Mego and Sub Rosa among many others. Taken as a whole, they capture and play with a timeless sense of drama and direct emotional rawness that's hard to ignore. For Touch, 'Quanta Of Light' offers two absorbing tracts; masses of sound whose cryptic structures use loudness to balance and protect an elemental purity which would disspiate under less complex conditions. You need to be dominated by the sheer force in order to understand its subtleties. Especially recommended for followers of Kevin Drumm, Fennesz and Merzbow.
