Boomkat Product Review:
In case the file extension in the title hadn't already given the game away, this latest from Vs_price (aka Vincent Papon) is another bulletin from the post-IDM electronica hinterlands. As ever, Expanding and their roster of artists should be commended for sticking to their guns in a climate that attempts to sweep the genre under the rug at every opportunity. While there's plenty of bitcrushed chaffe to go around there remains a healthy supply of compelling new home listening electronica records, and Vs_price has been doing his bit in this field ever since his 2002 Expanding debut. For this latest full-length the French producer tweaks the formula of muted, melancholic synths and glitched-out beats to evoke more organic sounds, placing greater emphasis on acoustic instrumentation and more contemporary-sounding 12k-style manipulations (as heard on the excellent 'Boiteziq'). The brightly reverberant refrain of 'Neuf' provides an excellent summation of Papon's skills, marrying a fluttering, granular rhythmic motif with a haunting synth loop reminiscent of Arovane's 'Thaem Nue'. The IDM backlash backlash starts here. Possibly.
