Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
CD – Satamile
This is Silicon Scally’s (aka Carl Finlow) second album which, after ‘Dark Matter’, articulates again effective electro sequences marrying the traditional sounds of this music genre in more refined and ‘glitched’ forms, rich in future-funky and sci-fi contaminations. Thick iterated and machine-like rhythms, a consequential evolution of a modus operandi leaning heavily towards these fronts (like in his other projects with the Random Factor and Voice Stealer monikers). Between the contemporary folds of close and syncopated musical structures, there are also melodic elements and robotic romanticisms (in line with the ‘dark and dandy’ appeal of the first musical and synthetic waves). Grafts that, in their complexity, together with ambient characterizations, create an interesting union of audio forms and suggestions.
