Xander Harris a.k.a Justin Sweatt crafts decaying 80s gore synth progressions using classic analogue synths and drum machines. The result is a celebration of the VHS age of American & European horror. Much like the recent Umberto tributes to various golden ages of soundtrack music, Sweatt pays respectful homage to his heroes whilst not straying too far from the original blueprints. There's obvious references to John Carpenter, Goblin and Faltermeyer here but Sweatt's crate digging guarantees more obscure references, some of which I'm totally unaware of. There's plenty of arpeggios, rolling soft synths, pulse generated beats and subtle yet progressive structures to get your head around here. Predominantly moody but thoroughly enjoyable stuff. Keep an eye out for a 100% Silk 12" in the future.
