Boomkat Product Review:
Quick on the heels of his contribution to The Binary Collective album, Joe Seven unveils his debut LP of technoir dread with Exit Records.
'Near/Far' occupies a liminal space between myriad sci-fi styles, eking out a dark, dreamlike scenario of pitch black ambient wormholes, frozen electro structures and passages of bittersweet, cinematic beauty organised with a gripping narrative and uniquely tempered production.
The closest comparisons we can draw would be Made's sorely overlooked 'Tracktitle' album for SCSI-AV - surely a major precursor of the Autonomic sound? - but also the likes of Kassem Mosse or the midnight styles of Versalife and 214.
