Two long-time Seattle compatriots team up, patch in, and give their modular rigs a workout. Followers of this label should be no stranger to Emuul's Kyle Iman, a household favorite who always offers up something unique and progressive with each new release. Here, Iman digs deeper into harsh territories than ever before, as ultra-deep bass swells build to the point of intense distortion. It's all held together, of course, by the sort of charming, pensive melody that always makes Iman's music so irresistible. On the flip side, newcomer Matthew Kenall unveils his Hemosis project with two distinct serenades. One explores a repeated melody, twisting and deconstructing a catchy tune with filters and effects. The next focuses primarily on texture, allowing looser and more drawn out passages to gleefully bubble and buzz.
