The latest release on the PAN sublabel PAN x Codes chronicles the warped, schmarped and screwed samples of Liverpool's Ling, assembled from recordings of journeys into the fields and e-fields. With Attachment, he attempts to explore how habitual behaviours can loosen our grip on reality, like when a phone buzzes and everyone in earshot checks their own. We're an odd bunch, us 21st century humans, aren't we?

8/10 Ant Staff review, 10 February 2016

The third release on Visionist and PAN collaborative label PAN x Codes is the debut EP from Ling. After the recent phase of retro electronic / synth music with every man and his dog emulating old German kosmische music it’s great to finally get stuff coming out recently (such as this) that’s actually futuristic sounding - looking forward instead of backwards.

Ling’s glitched up sound collages and heavily processed samples in ‘Thuril Whir’ sound like a Cyborg’s brain defragmenting or something. Or like the chaotic sounds of data from the modern world being transported around neurons. ‘44 Blue’ sounds like three different tracks are trying to break out out of encoded data - sounds battling and rebounding off one another in a sort of organised chaos.

‘Jezmonite’ is probably the most straightforward track on the EP - but still it’s pretty complex, dynamic and mangled - like possessed machines malfunctioning emitting ghostly, icy synth trails and fractured beats. Closer ‘Canthem’ sounds like some mutant UK bass music/ vaporwave track being gobbled up by evolving algorithms. Strong stuff, especially for a debut EP.

Recommended for fans of Autechre, Rabit, TCF, Visionist, The Sprawl, M.E.S.H. Oneohtrix Point Never etc.
