Boomkat Product Review:
Bristol’s secret weapons Rhythmic Theory drop the beats and go full-on imaginary sci-fi soundtrack in their 2nd album for Crème Organization
Can’t say we’re not a little bit disappointed that their killer drum programming isn’t on show, but the results still stand up in their immersive quality, absorbing traces of everything from Derrick May and Carl Craig’s classic ‘Relics’ interludes to classic Tangerine Dreams and the sound design of The Matrix in a style that clearly evokes their influences. RIYL Ballard, Synth Sense, Raime, The Sprawl.
“The mysterious Rhythmic Theory drops engorged electronics for imaginary landscapes, drawing influences from and providing a soundtrack to a vast range of S-F classics. From bubbling Richard Corbenesque polyps gone haywire to post-Delugian mainframe cities inhabited by floating creatures of light.”
