recently, hymen was able, using an overly complicated and ridiculously expensive neural monitoring process, to uncover the following thought transmissions from the soma-filled mind of daniel myer regarding his new architect album, i went out shopping to get some noise. of course, it’s translated from myer’s native german, but that, too, was done at great expense and at risk of life and limb:
today, i went out shopping to get some noise. hmmm…noise.
been shopping alone at experimental outfitters s’apex, ebm clearing house cleaner, and club-centric drum’n’bass hexer shop, and with friends at the futuristic drum’n’bass outlet dots + dashes, arty newt boutique, and the highly-regarded post-industrial noise establishment known as haujobb. wicked time shopping, to be honest about it…mass consumption of beats and breaks, all of it ice-hardened with technoid edge.
but today, gotta shop at architect…haven’t been here since galactic supermarket…gotta find the downtempo drum’n’bass digs i dug up the last time i was here…mostly it was modified breakbeats with a scent of panacea’s nouveau-terror crack patterns, but not as constrictive and painful as hellfish or doormouse.
galactic supermarket was ace - very break-centric - but today, i went out shopping to get some noise…an entirely different sound. hmmm…noise.
still all about the breaks, but now, it’s mutant synthpop rhythms and digitized machine crunching like autechre on “unlike” or “dievorce” a dark dose of beethoven’s moonlight sonata shaken - not stirred - over crackling percussion and pizzicato string bass with thick atmospheric details. fierce acid 303 jackhammer beats a’la afx and caustic window on “colorfusion” or better yet, why not a plate full of proper detroit techno blended with classic industrial noise throttling on “grand diesel”
today, i went out shopping to get some noise. tomorrow, who knows?...
note: the rest of daniel myer’s thought transmissions cannot be reproduced due to certain elements of international law, and out of a general desire on the part of hymen management not to offend fans of manchester united. instead, hymen suggests you pick up architect’s i went out shopping to get some noise and draw your own conclusions!
