Disruptions of Form is the latest album from enigmatic Manchester-based producer Echium. He is known for his hermit ways and making some precise ambient electronic music. This album is no exception, mixing ambient pop and cosmic electro-acoustics in a painstakingly arranged manner. It’s his first album for sferic since 2017’s Synthetic Space. It sees him rejoin a stable that also includes Space Afrika, Perila and Jake Muir.

High grade zoners on Echium’s second album for sferic following 2017’s ‘Synthetic Space’. Generally speaking, the vibe lies somewhere between the shimmering distilled ambient dub techno of label mates Space Africa, and the animated futuristic alien life form sound design of Exael’s ‘Collex’ on West Mineral.
The sounds Echium deploys seem to manifest as matter or unknown substances - mysterious solids, liquids and gases change state, mutate, expand and contract with fluctuations in environmental temperature. The sounds of liquid metal, dissolving, melting, evaporating. Morphing plasma reflecting on chrome surfaces. The sound of brittle ice-like crystals crack and fracture while being probed by Interdimensional AI robots taking samples to return to their distant realm - all rendered in glorious digital HD.
