I love datacassette. Very creative glitch IDM Ambient. I follow his instagram account where there are nice picture and a look inside datacassette. Today I bought the 2022 EP vinyl. Looking forward.
Described by his peers as a keystone in ambient-electro, Datassette is a bastion of the underground and one of alternative electronic music’s most exceptional and enigmatic talents.
His extensive and diverse discography spans two decades and includes a plethora of albums, EPs and remixes for independent record labels, including: Ai Records, Apollo/R&S, Wall Of Sound, CPU and Shipwrec. His work and creative output also extends to the music for TV and radio; producing sound effects for 8-bit video games; working as a graphic designer and co-running the Misc. label.
Datassette has never been shy of creating complex, addictive and emotive music and this magical music formula is replicated on Sentinel, his new EP for Lapsus Records.
As is emblematic in his long-standing career, Datassette demonstrates a healthy non-conformist approach to conventional labels and pigeonholing. By using a combination of powerful vintage hardware and latest generation digital techniques, the British producer continually manages to redefine his sound. This new four track EP sees him fuse abstract drum & bass, dub, electro, braindance and ambient.
I know my dude does the ambient tip on a rare occasion. Saying that I bought the album on a hot purchase frenzy without listening fist. Saying that I have come to appreciate the curve balls that are thrown from my favorite artists through out the years. And saying that I give gratitude to this artist that has the stones to release a curveball like my other boy RDJ and TJ and AE in the past that have shown me the path and left it up to me to take it. I am humbled to embark on this trek. Amor Fati
