Boomkat Product Review:
Hot-wired IDM/jungle/industrial rhythms and dreamlike ambience from Florence, Italy’s Train To Eltanin project
Leading from Train To Eltanin’s 2018 debut 12” with CyberspeakMusic, ‘4D R.E.M. Computation’ is a 7-track EP of nimbly crafted electro and drill ’n bass spams interspersed with icily melodic works and trancey arp rushes that attempt to emulate the brain’s activity during R.E.M. sleep,.
The jagged IDM jiggle of ‘Swimming Angels’ recalls their Italian brethren D’Arecangelo and Skam’s Jega, while the likes of ‘Page Table Isolation’ and ‘Ariverb’ touch on a crankier electro sound recalling Seefeel’s Mark Clifford, and at best they come off like DJ Stingray going toe-2-toe with Lorenzo Senni in ‘Unexpected Store Exception’, and the heart-in-mouth lift of ‘Ricominciando Dalla Fine’ that closes the LP with a lush flourish.
