Ital Tek – “Hollowed” – [Planet Mu]

Hollowed

 

This 2016 Ital Tek release is very different from his earlier busy-creative pattern, evolutionary dual-tempo dubstep/DnB/anything electronic music. Here instead Brighton UK based Alan Myson took his new favorite guitar just purchased to the studio and recorded sixty minutes of more atmospheric and synthwave-like electronic music. The beat patterns sneak in here and there, but they are mostly used as nuances rather than in-your-face kick drums. And yes the bass lines also have their presence, but more toned than manifested via brutal speaker attacks. The instrumentation moves between modes and fascinating utterances of depth and insight. This is more of a listening album than a club record, as such it’s wonderful that a contemporary producer is mindful and moves into unexpected directions on his fifth record, using classical composing techniques such as dynamic passages and unexpected turns.
