Dark Fidelity Hi Fi
Out 19th March
Hailing in the oncoming spring with Beautiful Fragments, Dark Fidelity Hi Fi presents a stunning nine-piece production. Channelling a sense of rebirth and an amplified awareness of hope, this work was produced during the wintertime and held true the vision of what awaits. Utilising his usual spacious and contemplative sound, Dark Fidelity Hi Fi sends listeners on audible journeys into infinite sonic scope. Now released, and with the passing of the spring equinox, these hymns to progress are ready to enjoy.
Speckles of sound shard into the air as a droning hum repeats on a steady pulse. A harmony rises as new rhythms add a direction to the build. Layers of melody reveal subtle atmosphere as the bass punches holes in the taper that gently glides through the sonic machinery. A vocal sample pierces the fizzing clouds of subtle static which carries the motion of this progressive composition. Motoko shimmers with world sounds and body tingling throbs of drive.
Rotations is next, the track begins with a series of chimes that evocatively mirror a rippling bass. After a moment to build the picture, a quick rhythm flusters into the groove, filling each notch with a precise program of beats. The melody flows in a tidal magnetism and as the parts coalesce and rise then layers increase density. Aquatic shine drifts across fast—paced activity as a swirling energy dances in the shifting patterns of harmony.
A guitar-like synth begins, it plucks a chorded structure into the air before a droning bass reminiscent of a bagpipe drone begins chopping the tension. A drum kicks in, dancing rhythms are lifted by a tempo driven bass that follows the line of the pulse. Waves and pressures manifest as sound that breaks open into sections over the regulated machinery of rhythm. Mechanics meet nature as vibrant and quantised bursts of spectra decorate the timed and ignited backbone of Fragments.
Next is Ghost In The Jazzbox. Bells glisten and drip like petals in the rain as a deep and reaching bass spans and scans in motions of application. Random additions of percussion act like anchors that keep us guessing as to how this with unfold and evaporate. Heart-beat like bass mixes with the sound of heavy breathing, synthesised by clever oscillations. A strange mixture of sounds dance in gloomy yet lively clouds of potential and flavoursome composition.
With revolving sounds and shines of twinkling radiance, a droning harmony drifts over the silence. This fades to reveal a throaty bass which resonates over finger-clicks and cymbal strikes. A bass drum thumps in stepped time as new levels of percussion find nestle-lines in the flow. A synthesiser pulse matches the tempo as draughty bass passes through the corridors of percussive dimensions. Sleeping Digital features Sarmism and it drifts along like pixelated clouds in a block-filled blue sky. It's been a long time since any sprites moved through this platform, now left to the forces of nature, these procedures and templates sprout strange evolutions.
A rewind sound breaks into melody which then abruptly stops. A buzzing electronic sound builds and then branches out into a dual tone of bass and spacious mid. Whirring and clicking sounds fill broken voids as a reaching bass synthesiser dreamily garnishes the undercarriage of the track. Spirals is a slow and graceful mix, lonely notes sway in secluded glades as clusters of social harmonies fritter in the outskirts.
Lost Communications follows. It opens with ghostly whispers of synthesiser and pitch. A pulsing sonar reaches into the unknown as satellite sounds orbit in unknown albedos. Bells enter like drenching waters flowing into open wide spaces. Progress ensues and within the scintillating sonics grow gardens of lush colour and intertwined reaching life. It seems that when explored, we find a myriad of impetus and input that squabble for our primary focus. If we take our time and absorb every moment on its own merits, we are left with an enchanting framework and patterned composition.
A breathy sensual energy wanders in from the history books and graces us with a modern enigma. Cerebral incantations break down into regulated pulses of power and intent. New waves of pressure drift in through open portals that peek out through shifting frameworks of space. Your Ghost Data lingers and hangs in the gently drifting air.
The album ends on Koln (Soft Transmission). Deep and resonant sounds curl and rise from unknown cavities as energy pulses rise with knitted steps through digitally attuned vectors. Then organic elements wrap like warm winter blankets as a woodwind flow begins to dance through the ample play left by the expanse of rhythm and bass. A tingling jam unfolds through scales and repeated motions in the self-expressive jazz.
