Autonomous heads to the Avoidant imprint with a triple header of Motor City electro on the Dialekt EP. The Waveform Transmitter‘s Ste Knight takes a listen, and presents an exclusive premiere of The Void.
There has always been something so raw and mechanistic about the Detroit electro sound, and duo Autonomous deliver a triple header of Drexciyan machine music as they bust Avoidant‘s first release of 2020 out from behind their creative bars, following the 2019 leftfield noodlings of PinballSpider.
The three-pack commences with the harder edged title track. Dialekt is a perfect example of how to ‘do’ electro, with ballistic percs setting the foundation for some foreboding synth work to take centre stage.
The Void follows up with a similarly solid sound, one which we premiere exclusively for you here today. Classic Detroit 808s are paired up with blistering acid lines to keep things on a steady track as we cross the EP’s mid-point.
The closer, Celestial Spaces is, as you might expect, an altogether more chilled affair – but that doesn’t mean it lets up on the dystopia. Ethereal pads float over the top of an insistant bassline and crunching drum patterns.
