Boomkat Product Review:
Coinciding with his surprise drop on Ultimate Hits, Peder Mannerfelt explores more abstract, personalised terrain with a 3rd set of studio inquiries on his private label.
Five tracks cover a range of heavily textured and morphing spaces with the sort of flow and touch that comes from focussed, confidently on-the-fly hardware manipulation - you get the feeling he could do this blindfolded, or maybe even was.
A running theme to the EP is vocal samples, which appear central to the phasing, mulching dimensions of Acid Drop; as sawn-off syllables wandering darkside murk in dB at Holger; or used as dubbed-out percussive hits in the Word Clap Bass.
Elsewhere, unstable electronics haunt and infect like a ghostly, airborne virus in Mach 2 and The Limits of Control floods the space with oncoming waves of blistered, squealing white noise in a manner recalling the dynamics of The Automatics Group’s Summer Mix.
