Synth Sense – “Tomorrow’s World” – [Auxiliary]
Out on ASC’s Auxiliary label, “Tomorrow’s World” is an incredible piece of music. Synth Sense, the drum and bass duo out of Kent, UK, look at an evolving world, and create an interpretation of music as seen through progression of technology. Yes, I did say drum and bass – however, this is not anything you’d expect. This is drum and bass deconstructed, stripped, torn down and re-programmed for grown up junglists. This is an absolutely bare sound, casting the listener as a floating, disembodied entity in a networked, dark underbelly of the collective subconsciousness. Fans of the sounds of Nonplus+ and Darkestral will love this album. For the non-junglist, this is going to sound like an ambient, downtempo techno album, but those brought up on 170bpm breaks, hoovers and techno stabs will recognize this for what it is: a work of drum and bass genius.
