Slipping under the radar until its official release tomorrow (March 23) on Interchill Records, the brand new Sun:monx EP has slapped a smile on our faces this Sunday. Slickly combining the hard-hitting glitch-hop of OPIUO with the laidback dubby upstrokes of Austero on guitar, today's premiere "Rotney Stem Cell" sets the tone for the EP with jammy, bluesy riffs and an addicting melody.
Exploring a myriad of different sounds and styles, the rest of the EP absolutely covers chiller areas, but the bounce and frenzy of "Rotney" pegs it as a standout glitch offering. The Melbourne pair got to put in some stage time as Oscar Davey-Wraight hit OZ hard for festival season, and brought Austero on-board to rip through some of the duo's material together.
Interchill has been setting the standard for downtempo, psychedelic, and sacred bass from its outposts in western Canada. The four-track EP cements the boutique label as a direct source of the finest in cerebral, top-notch electronic production. Long live IDM.
Expect some of these tunes to slip into the OPIUO set lists as he tours the States hard this summer with his live band. There's no question that a couple of tunes will be brought to life with the full instrumental outfit. We are beside ourselves wiht excitement.
