Boomkat Product Review:
Maxwell Sterling, IVVVO, Lachrin, James Massiah, Sadaf, Alobhe and Tendency lend misfit cuts to Nyx Unchained’s first compilation
Highlights include Maxwell Sterling taking cues from Coil and Dungeon Synth styles in the glowering drones of ‘Jhonn’; the road-level London kill-count reportage of James Massiah; and the hyper paso-doble dembow collage of ‘War Text’ by Sadaf - think Kelman Duran gone haywire.
“‘Transcendence’ serves to illuminate a burning playing field of ideas. Converging acoustic and high register digital manipulation, poetry and transformative soundscapes to form a haunting veil over a dynamic sphere of sound and words.”
