Rephlex presents a stellar, forward-thinking debut album from Dave Monolith. Since the launch of their exclusive, independent online music store, Monolith has been the most discussed, downloaded artist of the whole roster and yet he is totally new on the scene and relatively unknown. Judging from public reaction, the label thinks it's about time that quality instrumental electronic music had a loud shout in the public domain and this is the perfect candidate; monolithic in name and nature. Monolith aka David Paul Barnard lives in the Wiltshire countryside and contexualizes his music as such: "My musical interest developed, which was my first attempt at music production. This record is essentially a compilation album. I only make individual tracks in different styles, so ultimately, the record had to be compiled into a coherent selection of music. I think this has been done successfully by Rephlex. My ambition is to make my next best track, to keep doing what I want to do, to travel to different places, and to be able to draw a crowd every now and then. I hope I can inspire people as I have been inspired by others myself, to bring other individuals as much enjoyment as my music brings me. The strongest elements of my tracks often have a disjointed pop sensibility -- this is something I aim for." Notable influences for this album include: Aphex Twin, Aleksi Perälä, Bruce Haack, David Vorhaus, Delia Derbyshire, Dopplereffekt, Drexciya, Enya, Jean Michel Jarre, Luke Vibert, The Other People Place, The Tuss and Warp 9.
