Boomkat Product Review:
Expanding Records barely pause for breath, just a few weeks after the excellent Vessel full lengther, there's a new project on the block. Vincent is a French electronic artist based in Toulouse. His background is steeped in guitar-based music, and yet the Vs_Price release is sure to please listeners who appreciate the gritty minimal structures of artists like Shuttle358, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Fennesz and even Microstoria. 'Eponge' kind of sums up this album very well as an opener, initial pointillist loops mutate into the abrasion of crisped digital textures and a whisper of guitar feedback, before a wicked hip hop tempoed beat drops and just detonates on impact. Calming drifts of melody top the heady brew, and the beat kicks it with some awesome sub bass science redefining low end theory before your ears can take it all in. In keeping with this depth charge opener, the album presents a well rounded dose of invisible melodies, digital interference and abrupt electrical downpours - unfolding multi-layered, arhythmic whorls of sound. Tracks like 'Bretelle' and 'Outrageous' have a crushed hip-hop vibe to them that practically seep into the subconscious, a squashed sound from the school of Musik Aus Strom, no bad thing in all truth. 'Palm' fairly crackles with submerged activity, merging ancestral chords with chattering percussive lines. The two closing tracks, "Pass" and "Dither" extract minute electrical frequencies that roll across the spectrum of sound easily. 'Pass' just takes an important step back, elements are deployed on an uncarved block, mithering loops exert ennervating influence on the album, and as deepest bass rumbles take control, the point dawns that all the disturbances merely smokescreen the ripping good rhythms suggested by these underground elements. '[Calin]Minette_' is produced with the textures of electrical wires in deep communion; microscopic sheets of static spread across stretched melodies. Further impressive emissions then from the Expanding camp, as they close on a shared perspective of a renewable experience, with varied factors taking the attention on each visit to this fine album. Recommended as always from this excellent imprint.
