Boomkat Product Review:
Planet Mu introduce The Host with his eponymous debut album. It's no secret that The Host is a pseudonym for a well known µ cadet, as you'll be able to tell within seconds of hearing the samples, but for less aware listeners we'll leave that mystery to your google search bar. His first album in this mode is an impressionistic, nostalgic reflection on the internet and its otherworldly nature. It's apparent in track titles such as 'Neo Geocities', '3AM Surfing', 'Second Life' or 'Angel Fire' - some of which we suspect might only be relevant to users over a certain age - and while the music isn't quite a literal interpretation of the theme, its synthetic surfaces and absorption/refraction of sonic memes engages the aesthetic nicely. Unlike, say Ital's recent 'Hive Mind' meditation on cyberspace, which was made almost exclusively "in-the-box", his is a more dreamily naive - yet no doubt complex - sound, haunted by the fidelities of more archaic equipment, somehow recalling the spirit of IDM electronica back in the mid/late '90s/early '00s when forums where gateways for (us) provincial types to unimaginably magical music which seemed like it was from another dimension entirely. If you were thrilled by Kuedo's 'Severant', can remember buzzing off Boxcutter's 'Oneiric' or were aware of Machinedrum before the re-invention, this comes with a strong recommendation.
