Singularity Series 1
Science Cult Records
TBR: 24th September
The Science Cult team proudly present their newest musical avenue. The Singularity Series from Lee Holman explores and dissects the Techno genre with banging quality. With storyboards and months of writing behind him, this first edition of the music run whets the lips. Late night lights and smoke machines no-doubt fill the imagination but what else can we expect? Let's listen.
With rattling bells and a thunderous bass Abstain From All Intoxicants begins. Thrusting tempo raises with tonal wholesomeness with adjustments in the levels subtly building the sonic pressure. An urgency calls out through persistent bells and alarm like tension as huge bass drips like mercury onto hot wood. The volume just keeps climbing as new layers of unison tempo fill the space into a massive wall of sudden rhythm.
A wobbly at sea sense brings out a new drum-score as more rumbling bass and toms throb and thrash to the clickety click of rolling hats. A growling creeper bass sniffs around in the lower passages as it ascends the stair to greet the garden. Chirps and open-air sounds whistle quietly among the huge dance rhythm projected through bass and cymbal. Progression and prowess bring Deep Cover to a climactic trance and full-body dance that hypnotises with repetition and roaring sensations.
Next is Death Surge. Deep and resonant bass hits us with the familiar techno edge. A cymbal hits the offbeat as distant oscillations twinkle behind the curtain. Listening intently, behind the dance instructions, a grinding sound rises like an engine. Drums now add to the bass and fill the space with energy as the synthesiser rises in amplitude. Motives and subtle movements shine behind the continual uplift of progressive drumming. New layers of rhythm throw the track into an everlasting climb out of the atmosphere and into stellar orbit.
Choppy synths in multiple arrangements are pinned together by a glistening and wooden throb bass. Massive and intense, the rhythm punches us in the temples as robotic voices start to chant. A ringing cymbal then implements its intention as the digital sounds twirl into spirals. Neutralise builds with gradual input, extra layers of atmosphere develop through frantic and kinetic drum-fills that hang from the climbing bars of a constant bass.
