Stott, Andy – “Faith In Strangers” – [Modern Love]

FaithInStrangers

Andy Stott is a Manchester based producer that shifts between various electronic styles.This release continues on his development of spooky ambient and dirty-aggressive drum machine and synth beats and soundscapes accompanied by Alison Skidmore’s inner-voice vocals (his piano teacher) The album starts soft but energy is added along the way up to lurid synths and massive bass penetrations, even electronic bass on the D side. The songs zig and zag between abstract invitation and?? grinding aggression, lots of lo-fidelity and sometimes casual music noise. Kicks and snares bubble up between noise scenarios. The whole album is a buildup reminding of a deliberate mix build-up where each songs contributes to the next – expect more energy tracks along the album progression with unexpected gear-shift-downs along the way.

This is electronic music that wants to be distinctive.
