Boomkat Product Review:
Berlin-based DSM have been in operation since 1982 producing vinyls, CD and tapes for a wealth of underground imprints such as Hypnagogia, Vinyl-On-Demand, Auf Abwegen and more, also collaborating with groups such as The New Blockaders, Zeitkratzer Ensemble and Artificial Memory Trace. They've performed in high art institutions such as Centre Pompidou, Paris, - and far beyond. Which all leaves the question, what do they sound like? 'Frequency Conquistadors' is seriously minimalist, for the most, and highly abstract to its avant-garde core. All manner of acousmatic sounds appear, only to recede behind the curtain, and perhaps reappear in new costume, or as a whole other entity, but this charade occupies the whole record, its unrelenting eccentricities constantly tugging at our perception of time and space to leave us feeling quite detached and confused. Like everything else on this amazing label, it comes to you with our highest recommendation.
