realthumbass anything xani does is awesome
Nihility thumbnail
Nihility Ryan’s erratic drum programming is enough to make me buy this album, but underneath it all is melody and ambience unlike anything I’ve ever heard, and much to good to resist. 38848293994727 out of 10. Favorite track: psicicite.
ApparentlyShane thumbnail
ApparentlyShane Xanoption once again proving that he makes some of the best IDM / Breakcore out there. Dense, chaotic and utterly goddamn beautiful. Favorite track: ungrokd.

ryan friedrich is known from his first release 'azif' in 2002. breakcore addicts who were familiar with sound-cut masters like venetian snares were impressed: ryan went far beyond the above-mentioned by building up walls of snippets (sometimes lasting less than half of a second) into sheer break-noise mayhem. hymen records’ first xanopticon record 'liminal space' was a compact, ultra-fast, stunning roll block of sound that left the listener nailed to the wall.

three years later, 'psicicite' has the same ingredients that xanopticon is known for - microscopic synth tones, noises, samples - and of course beats. ryan has forced these bits, pieces and breaks into a metric corset. the four tracks are straight and fast, with a sound structure that changes every second. there is not time to take a breath between the attacking drums - nevertheless there are well placed pauses which result in a stunning dynamic range. in short, a work of complexity and dramatic art.
