- Rockets Unto The Edges Of Edges by Scanner
Scanner. Love the old stories about his DJ by proxy nights around the globe where he used to send mates out with a laptop of his stuff to DJ in different cities 'round the globe while he sat on his arse watching Glass Smash Face Aids (Eastenders) or some such toss. We've a new CD by him on BineMusic and it's a remarkable departure. 'Rockets, Unto the Edge of Edges' begins with a cyclic guitar loop courtesy of Mike Giro from Swans Way which is then overlaid with haunting atmospherics, some subtle glitch and Robin Rimbaud's very own beautiful tender voice. It's a thoroughly impressive introduction from a man I only ever saw as a fringe minimalist prankster. There's strong elements of techno & electronica still in place but he plonks a rich piano & strings over the clunky breaks of epic 'Pietas Ilulia' which transforms gradually into a symphony with some dirty ass DHR style splatter beat. Will appeal hugely to fans of Apparat & Digitonal. 'Anna LiviaPlurabelle' is like a passage from Gorecki's Symphony No. 3 with this astounding aria backed with the most graceful piano tinkles & gliding ambient strings. Later on things get a bit more industrial via some squelchy teutonic beats whilst a tweaked laptop spits glitchy effects and sinister backward masked vocal samples. I've no time to investigate further than T5 but believe me, this is absolutely flooring stuff. CD only.
