Imminent Synapscape - The Humanoid Problem

The humanoid problem' is the next evolutional level of longtime collaborators Imminent and Synapscape wherein three becomes one. A perfect fusion that catalyzes the intelligence and genius of all three sound technicians into one thinking self-dependent machine - with a humanoid problem. Tthe album is designed to perform a continuously dense & reckless heavy onslaught branching out from technoid idm to industrial noise. The information process & sensory feedback is kept under control by a complex series of solid rhythm-based actions operated with subtle experimental accumulations. Multiple layers of diverse powerful beats are the foundations for minimalistic soundscapes applied with all powerful bass pulses creating a catchy, forceful vibe which instantly forces you to move despite it’s innate complexity. Both insistent and unrelenting the resurrection of this exceptional alliance is a stand out piece beyond any expectations - sturdy and dynamic from start to finish. 8 track vinyl excerpt including a download code for the full album.

Axiome - L'avenir est un cerf teint

Since it began in 1991, Axiome formed by C-drik Fermont and Olivier Moreau has passed through an unexpected evolution, journeying through most different electronic music genres. Over the years, complex industrial and breakcore elements turned into straightforward idm, electro and acid components bit by bit without losing this project's explorative trait. 'L'avenir est un cerf teint' introduces a broad range of tempers between the dark icy menace of classic belgian electronic body music and the euphoria of a technoid rave. besides the omnipresent sub-bass, saturated beats and subliminal dots of experimental electronics, the focus of these eleven compositions is also set on elaborate melodic themes which indelibly stick in the listener's mind. An album which perfectly bridges the gap between ambitious and accessible - as coherent as an axiom, and as enigmatic as the album title.

Axiome - The Smell of Lava in the Morning

With their seventh release 'The Smell of Lava in the Morning', Axiome are back in full swing and present an album that integrates a wide span of styles and moods melted into an expansive and coherent flow of energy, just like lava after a volcanic erruption. Well-structured and tightly produced, the ten tracks carry an energizing idm / braindance and acid hybrid featuring accentuated sequencer lines and synth pads underlaid with complex hypnotic rhythm textures keeping the pulse flickering constantly. A good and catchy yet challenging album, distracting and dissecting the senses with its forced density and organized deconstruction. Not exactly destined for the dancefloor, but still making you move, 'The Smell of Lava in the Morning' is highly recommendable to lovers of contemporary beat-driven electronic music.

Axiome - Ten Hymns for Sorbetière

Seven years have passed since we saw the last signs of life from this headstrong project - with 'Ten Hymns for Forbetière...' Axiome return triumphantly and unmistakably. C-drík Fermont and Olivier Moreau (Imminent) present an aural landslide of amazingly dense sounds, heavy beats and menacing, freezing atmospheres, choosing coldness and ice as a central theme for the album.

Splicing genres like idm, acid, rhythm&noise, dark, brooding electro infusions and techstep to an insane hybrid, these 'hymns' mark a perfect syncrisis of simplicity and complexity. Accelerated technoid rhythms are perfectly interfused with powerful percussion laced with hard, deftly sequenced melodic structures and combined with a retreat to insistent, repetitive analogue bubblebath-esque electronic textures. A mélange of force and beauty that is rarely matched by anyone else.

Axiome have always been uncompromising, surprising and incalculable throughout their existence - this album is no exception. ten unique, intelligent and atmospheric soundtracks to the sentiments of a biting winter, but suitable for all seasons. So stop worrying and love the freezer!

Imminent - Cask Strength

Cask strength is the term used in whisky making to describe the strength of whisky (in a cask) during maturation. This strong whisky is not the one that is usually bottled, as at cask strength the whisky isn't as drinkable. Most bottled whisky is normally diluted with spring water to bring its strength (alcohol by volume) down to a level that makes it more palatable, usually about 40%. While the majority of whisky bottled by distillers is watered down, some whiskies are bottled at cask strength, which is about 64% abv.

Imminent Starvation has been a leading light in the intersection of powerful industrial music and advanced electronics. Incessant technoid rhythms, twisted electronic noise and cold, sinister atmospheric textures are the key ingredients in Olivier Moreau's musical spectrum. After finishing 'Nord/North' in 1999, he destroyed his mixing desk, gave away the pieces as part of the limited ‘Nord’ release and shortened his moniker to Imminent. After the name change he produced remixes for Sonar, Iszoloscope, Orphx and others, appeared on compilations, performed live and collaborated with Synapscape as 'The Incredible Three'. Furthermore he constantly worked on this new full length album which has now been completed.

Like any good whisky that has to mature for at least 10 years in a cask, it took the same time for this release to maturate - and it was worth awaiting the ripening. Indeed the music is comparable to a cask strength whisky’s taste: raw, aggressive, powerful, without any concession or any additive to dilute it's true nature, but it also includes a lot of complexity that awaits to be discovered by a true connoisseur. Straight beats interwoven with sophisticated breaks, brilliantly placed samples, intertwining powerful atmospheric synth textures and forceful distorted sequences (without inhibition) form into the sophisticated style of industrial music Imminent is known and loved for. 64 minutes of music - just like a 64% abv bottled cask strength whisky contains - taste it and full satisfaction is guaranteed!
