Boomkat Product Review:
Gunning for most concise artist/album title of the year, SW’s 2nd ‘LP’ plumbs the depths of analog electronics in pursuit of a mercurial techno muse
Stefan Wust a.k.a. SW’s sophomore album follows the lines of his widely appreciated 2016 debut into characteristically off-centre and heady spaces that don’t necessarily fit any paradigm other than his own, and the sound he shares with SUED label mates SVN and Dynamo Dreesen.
In six parts he carries his weight elegantly between the ghost-in-the-machine voices of the opener, thru a spot of pendulous Hi-Tech Jazz IDM, to land in explore diffuse sci-fi bleep ’n bass coordinates before mellowing on the B-side with a lovely run from B12-esque electronica to acidic dream house and a steeply opiated, subbass-heavy ambient melter.
