Album Review

Drumcell – “Sleep Complex” – [CLR]

Belladonna   10/15/2014   A Library, CD

aka Moe Espinosa, founder of the Droid Recordings Label. Espinosa is an LA native, suprising given the overall dark gloomy quality to this release, this is deprived of sunlight. Yes this is considered Techno but definitely more dark electronics along the lines of Empty Set, Kangding Ray, Pansonic etc. Dark churning beats, somber rhythms and industrial moments. Along with that there are a few straightforward non scary techno/beat tracks (trk 4 & 7) but I much prefer the former. And if you don’t like any beats, track 9 is a cinematic soundscape featuring a recording of a police radio or the intro track which is a short but sweet creepy cavernous loop. This is amazing.
