J. Albert – Atabey [anno]

A long-format slow-burning techno breakbeat manifesto. New York-based label anno released J. Albert‘s latest Pre Formal Audio EP in July with Atabey as the focus piece on the record. Nearly 9 minutes of existential-inducing pad, dub delay and flanger-tinged breaks culminate, ebb and flow for a superb audio journey. It’s a jam that sounded like a blast to record / riff with those reverb builds and dives; notably I can get a sense and appreciate the emotional state of how the artist was feeling during the recording. The change ups continue until the last seconds, leaving you engaged to the bitter end. Pick up a copy of Pre Formal Audio on anno’s bandcamp page.
