- UL8 by Mark Fell
9/10 Ant Staff review, 10 December 2010
What a way to end the year with a double drop from the man Mark Fell; just two weeks ago I was drooling over his 'Multistability' disc for Raster Noton and then this lands! As academic as this music is, in terms of its creation and conception, what I really enjoy is that it's simply a lot of fun and like nothing else out there. 'UL8' is split into three parts 'The Occultation of 3C 273' Vortex Studies' and 'Acids In The Style Of Rian Treanor'. It's a right brain-teasing set of percussive synthesis; modified drum samples; insane, elastic transforming frequencies and visionary geometric abstractions. Track three is brilliant with its pin prick bleeps and mind boggling rhythms, it is computer music at it's finest. The Acid set of tracks are particularly pleasing, their squelches being manipulated with extreme dynamics and skittering beats. Note the little cheeky nod to personal chum and fellow label mate Hecker. By the time I've reached the final twentieth track it feels like my brain has been rewired but then closer 'Death Of Loved One' totally takes me by surprise with its lush, shiver inducing synth orchestrations. If your ears and Multistability get on well or if you enjoy Hecker's work then this is essential and I would say takes Fell's digital art even further into enticing realms, previously unheard. Both radical and playful, 'UL8' challenges the conventions of rhythm and standard electronic music structures. Highly recommended.
