The latest release from Hypnus Records is – to be pretty honest – much like all of their other releases. However, it’s a microgenre all of it’s own, and its one I happen to love.
Subtle pads swell and sway, in the background, accompanied by a high-passed white noise. Tribal percussion and shimmering hi-hats bask in epic reverb spaces. Analog synths and a beefy kick lie beneath it all, but it’s all concocted together with such delicacy and subtlety that you never really notice new elements fade in or fade out. It’s techno without being floor-filling, it’s ambient without being overly relaxing.
