Boomkat Product Review:
'Four' features four electronic treatments of the same cello and viola recording, each one dedicated to a different city. It's brooding, slow-building and noisy stuff for fans of Machinefabriek and Ben Frost.
Skelton might be best known for his low-key acoustic works, but his electronic compositions are often just as arresting. Released in 2019, "Four" borders on power ambient, offering different processes of the same source material. Each one highlights Skelton's engineering skill and shows his ability to transform instrumental sounds into crashing waves of harmony and static.
Anyone into the building quiet-to-deafening dynamic throb of Lawrence English's "Cruel Optimism" will find plenty to sink their teeth into here.
