Recycled Broadcasts EP – Halogen
If you are a fan of intelligent & delicately glitched-out IDM laced with melodic oscillating rhythms & slightly industrial crunchy sounds & textures, then I recommend you pay close attention to Halogen’s first EP release “Recycled Broadcasts”, available via free download from November 16th from www.maternitymedia.co.uk
This is an impressive first release from Halogen aka Adam Janota-Bzowski, and I’m keen to hear what else is in store from this talented artist. The unique theme to this release is human communication, and Adam has demonstrated this by intrinsically layering old 50’s radio broadcast samples & human voices throughout the EP. This gives his sound a unique & original quality, as you find yourself listening to flawlessly produced cutting edge electronic sounds with a familiar 50s feel carefully woven through – quite an interesting & original combination that works brilliantly.
Very carefully crafted & tweaked, each track on the EP has a different feel to it, and all are of high quality & production. No filler here, only refined sonic gems. Glitch & IDM fans everywhere will delight in Halogen’s finely tuned ear. The highlight of Recycled Broadcasts for me is the second track on the EP entitled “Manilla“. Tantalizing whirrs, tripglitched themes, finely cutup scratching, sultry swinging blues samples and a big beat undercurrent contained within this track, inspire you to want to strut your stuff in front of a speaker stack in a fur coat with champagne and a whimsical smile.
Get your hands on this EP – you know what they say – the best things in life are for free…
