Mikkel Metal Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Mikkel “Metal” Meldgaard returns to pal Kenneth Christiansen’s deep dub factory Echocord with an EP of glazed, distinct productions. Things begin serenely in the lush chords and soft kick of ‘Awake’, before gaining energy for the strut of ‘Bregnan’. Then you have your introspective (‘Jech’) and dreamy (‘Include’) moments before the last lap: the gurgling ‘Konkin’ and finally the highly mechanical, German-sounding ‘Restore’.
Mikkel Metal returns. The dub techno don has kept us waiting since 2008 for this full length on double vinyl LP and CD. Echocord release Resemblance, and thankfully Meldgaard’s signature blend of deep dub experiments and very intimate minimal techno is still intact, although sharpened up for 2016. This is rich and personal electronica.
