Mechanist – The Hum

“Soundscapes. Projections. Hypnosis.”

Mechanist’s first release of 2016 comes on IIVII with two new techno tracks.

The first, ‘The Hum’ is a droned out, minimal dub piece experimenting with a single dub chord throughout, Mechanist develops the chord into waves of pads, a drone humming throughout. Around the chord comes a broken kick, and 808 percussions layered in reverb and delay.

The second track, ‘Dieppe’ takes us in another direction. A heavy minimal track built around a simple pad and a stuttering set of kick drums, coalescing into a flail of 909 rides and hats.
