Boomkat Product Review:
New on Highpoint Lowlife comes this debut album from Devon-based producer 10-20, whose obscure, impersonal nom de plume hardly reflects the intense, rich and oddly emotive electronics that make this first full-length so engaging. You'll find yourself reminded of the clicks+cuts movement at its very best on pieces like 'wdtrhjvelgrad' - a track which carries a hard, snapping beat that could have been lifted from one of Andreas Tilliander's early Mokira albums - whilst also suggesting the immersive, texture-laden soundscapes of Burial. For all its ponderous, meticulously pieced together production, when 'unde' comes about, its rampaging drum shuffle injects some eleventh hour energy into the album, which suddenly sounds nearly as organic and virtuosic as Autechre at their florid best. Impressive stuff from the Highpoint Lowlife label.
