scorn was founded by mick harris in 1991 to create rhythmic, hypnotic drum and bass music. harris has explored previously uncharted musical territory and redefined the world of ambient dub by utilizing a throbbing low end, ethereal sounds and big beats. scorn has emerged as the vanguard of both the post-rock and isolationist aesthetics; appropriating such distinctly communal music as hip hop and dub to extreme individualistic ends.
hymen records is proud to release the follow-up ep to 'imaginaria award'. governor' features six tracks (both on cd and vinyl) ranging from slow motion grooves compounded by heavy beats to warm and relaxing structures. yet another highlight in harris' extensive work.
'governor' has the familiar qualities of harris' former works: sub bass, minimalist grooves and slow beats. this quality is broken by the more up-tempo somatic responses remix of 'the snow hill'. the paralyzing, dark mood will take the listener deep down and 26 minutes will seem to be 260.
